Leasowe Castle is a stunning wedding venue on the Wirral Peninsula, watching out over the Irish Sea. Built in 1593 by Ferdinando, the 5th Earl of Derby and second heir to the English throne, it was initially called “New Hall”, with his primary residence being Knowsley Hall. The original building consisted of a simple octagonal tower, somewhat smaller than the Old Hall in Knowsley. Although never intended as a fortified castle, its door was six feet above the ground for security and to protect against high tides with walls one meter thick!

Ferdinando was a patron of many contemporary writers, including William Shakespeare. His brother William was described as a noted sportsman and keen supporter of horse racing. William was particularly a fan of the Wallasey races, a forerunner to the Derby, which took place on the sands close by in the 16th and 17th centuries. Whether New Hall was intended as a venue for the arts and entertainment or simply somewhere to watch the races is still debated today.

In the subsequent years, the Hall passed through several hands, being extended and modified. Finally, in 1836 the ceiling and panelling of the Star Chamber from the Palace of Westminster were brought to Leasowe. While the panelling was removed in 1983, the ceiling and four tapestries depicting the four seasons remain.

Today this romantic venue looks out over the Leasowe Golf Courses and coastline as the Wirrals’ only Castle.
