Browsholme Hall has been the ancestral home of the Parkers, Bowbearers of the Forest of Bowland since Tudor times.

Today it is still the family’s home and Robert and Amanda Parker invite visitors to enjoy its magnificent architecture, fabulous interiors, antique furnishings and lovely gardens.

Visitors will not only view the remarkable antiquarian collection, but gain the genuine atmosphere of an historic family home. Superb oak chests, Gillow furniture, portraits, porcelain, civil war arms and many unique relics including mementoes of Bonnie Prince Charlie and even a fragment of a Zeppelin reflect the continuous occupation by the Parkers for over 500 years.

Please check the website for further information, admission times and details about special events.
