Set in 14 acres of grounds, Trafford Hall combines the elegance and grandeur of a Georgian mansion house with modern facilities, alongside our eco-friendly chalet accommodation situated within the grounds adjacent to the main house. Take a stroll in the beautifully landscaped grounds or visit some of the many attractions in Cheshire, a county with a few hidden delights up its sleeve.
Stroll around the tranquil grounds of Trafford Hall and it’s hard to believe that the cities of Chester and Liverpool are on your doorstep. Set in the Cheshire countryside, just a few minutes from the M56, our elegant Georgian mansion is a truly memorable place to hold your event.
Trafford Hall was built in 1756. In 1993, after years of searching for an appropriate venue, Anne Power (Professor at London School of Economics and acting Chair of Trafford Hall) visited a beautiful, yet dilapidated, Grade II listed Georgian Manor House nestled in the Cheshire countryside. Grand Metropolitan agreed to buy Trafford Hall for the charity, following support from government (Sir George Young), business (John Laing Charitable Trust, McAlpines, NatWest, BT) along with the Duke of Westminster and Chester City Council.
In 1995 the Centre was officially opened by Prince Charles following a programme of low cost restoration of the house and construction of 24 eco-chalets within the walls of the Victorian sunken garden, using unemployed young trainees from Runcorn and Prince’s Trust. The total cost of the work was a third of the original estimate, and was funded 1/3 private, 1/3 government and 1/3 charity.
