You will then travel to Leighton Hall, it is so much more than a historic house, Leighton has no roped off areas and visitors can get involved, sit on the furniture and play the piano, and with friendly and enthusiastic guides to share with you the magic of Leighton. During your visit we have also included an afternoon tea in ‘real’ tea cups in the charming tea rooms.
