Hall opens to public
PEOPLE are being invited to learn all about the history behind the landmark Meols Hall in Churchtown in Southport.
The 12th century manor house is now open until September 14, between 1.30pm and 5.30pm.
Set in one hundred acres of private parkland close to the picturesque village of Churchtown, this is one of the oldest settlements on the Lancashire coast.
Within the grounds of Meols Hall is the Tithe Barn, which provides one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding anywhere in England.
A spokesman said: “If you are looking for an afternoon out this summer why not visit Meols Hall and see the picturesque village of Churchtown, with the whitewashed cottages, antique shops and St Cuthbert’s Church.
“Afterwards enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the various restaurants in Churchtown village. Why not spend time after tea in the Botanic Gardens and browsing around the shops in Churchtown village.
“If you want a full day out, spend time shopping in Southport in the morning and then on to Churchtown Village during the afternoon.” Admission to Meols Hall is £4 adults. Booking required for large groups. There is a regular local 49 bus service from the centre of Southport to Meols Hall in Churchtown village.
