Tabley House Collection
The Tabley House Collection is housed in the finest Palladian mansion in Cheshire. The estate was home to the Leicester family for 700 years, until the mid-1970’s. Their legacy includes some of the finest art, furniture and books that money could buy, as well as a fascinating family history.
Tabley House Collection welcomes individual and group visitors, and is renowned for its knowledgeable and friendly guides and volunteers.
Tabley House is a licenced venue for Civil Weddings, providing grand yet intimate surroundings for that special day.
The state rooms, Chapel and tea rooms, have also been used for several film and TV productions, most recently the top BBC 2 drama ‘Peaky Blinders’.
