Due to essential maintenance works being carried out, Croxteth Hall is currently CLOSED for casual visits. As soon as we have more specific details around dates and timings of maintenance completion, we’ll update our website and social media channels to reflect this.
Thank you for your patience as we look to protect and preserve our building for generations to come.
If you are hoping to visit Croxteth Hall once our essential maintenance repairs are completed and COVID-secure restrictions have been lifted, see what we usually have to offer below.
We want to make sure that all of our visitors feel welcome at Croxteth Hall and Country Park. If you have a particular enquiry regarding accessibility to the Hall and grounds, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Disabled Access and Blue Badge parking
A number of disabled parking bays are available at Croxteth Hall, if using these bays, we ask that you please display a Blue Badge when parking. To access these parking bays, please use the traditional service entrance via Flint Drive off Croxteth Hall Lane which provides the best access to these facilities. Please use postcode L12 0HB as your Sat Nav reference for this parking.
The entrance to Croxteth Hall is ramped and there is a lift which gives access to the upstairs display rooms. The Cafe area on the grounds of the Hall is also accessible via a ramp – please use the right-hand entrance at the Courtyard to gain entry. This also provides level access to the Toilets and Disabled/Changing places toilets.
The Country Park has miles of estate roads and tracks with tarmac and stone surfacing which makes them easily accessible, whilst the Victorian Walled Garden has slightly ramped access onto fine gravel paths.
Our playground includes a wheelchair swing and is accessible via tarmacked paving. Please ask in the Gift Shop located on the ground floor of Croxteth Hall for a fixing kit (to secure the wheelchair) – a Radar key is required for access.
Croxteth Park Farm has level or ramped access, but please be aware that the farmyard is cobbled.
