Our Story

Lord Derby, Edward Stanley, and the Stanley Family

Welcome from Lord Derby

Welcome to Knowsley, home to my family and home to four contrasting yet thriving enterprises that comprise my family’s business.

Knowsley Safari and Knowsley Hall, two great Merseyside icons, continue to delight and entertain many hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The Estate with its farmland, houses and Stanley Grange Business Village all provide a wider Knowsley community with livings, homes and environments.

And further afield but very much part of the family is the Stanley House Stud, home to my `Mare in a Million’ Ouija Board.
