 Turton Tower is a house that has been evolving over the last 600 years. From a stone tower house in the 1400s to the home of the Tudor Orrell and, later, the Victorian Kay Families, Turton Tower has been altered and adapted to suit the needs and tastes of those who lived here.

It is because of these changes that Turton Tower is of national importance and unique in Northwest England. Today it still captures the spirit of those ages and displays some of the finest paintings and furniture in the region.

Turton Tower Opening Times:
Wednesday to Sunday, including bank holidays, 11.00 am to 4.00 pm.

Adults £6, Concessions £5, Children under 16 years (accompanied) FREE!

Disabled Access
Due to the nature and age of the building disabled access is limited.  Wheelchair users are limited to the ground floor only.  Disabled access toilets are available outside in the grounds.
