5 reasons to choose Knowsley Hall for your wedding

Its spacious surroundings, exclusively yours for the day, make Knowsley Hall the perfect place to host your wedding.

Historical Knowsley Hall dates back to 1495 and has been evolving ever since. Thanks to the various Earls of Derby who sought to make their mark and celebrate their good fortune through additions and alterations to the building, today’s Hall is a fascinating structure boasting a grand Georgian façade and some magnificent Jacobean, Baroque and Victorian interiors.
