Capesthorne Hall, built between 1719 and 1732 and set in 100 acres of picturesque Cheshire parkland, has been touched by nearly 1,000 years of history.

The Hall has a fascinating collection of fine art; marble sculptures; porcelains; tapestries and English, European, Far Eastern and American antique furniture collected by family members.

In the grounds enjoy the family Chapel, the 18th century Italian Milanese gates, the beautiful lakeside gardens and woodland walks.

The Hall and Gardens are open to visitors between March and October each year. They offer superb facilities for wedding ceremonies and receptions, special occasions and celebrations, day conferences, business meetings and dinners, corporate hospitality, marquee events, concerts, shows and fairs.
