Set in eight acres of rolling Lancashire countryside, less than an hour from the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, West Tower is an impressive country house wedding venue. Built as a private residence, today it is an exclusive-use venue retaining the style and comfort you might expect to feel when welcomed in to a beautiful home.
On arrival at West Tower, you can relax in the knowledge that your entire wedding will take place under one roof. The house is licensed for ceremonies both inside and out, in the light and airy ballroom with its floor to ceiling windows, or outside on the lawn under the romantic ceremony pagoda.
After saying your vows, join your guests for drinks and canapés in the Cellar Bar, or in the great outdoors, enjoying some fabulous photo moments beside the wishing well, on the elegant steps leading up to the house or on the picturesque lawn.
Dining takes place in our stunning Ballroom with far-reaching views over the unspoiled countryside - its neutral wooden floors, ivory walls and delicate chandeliers lending themselves perfectly to your chosen colour scheme. At West Tower, we pride ourselves in offering an exceptional standard of dining and service, our talented chefs creating your menu, perhaps using our dedicated wedding package to inspire the choices for your wedding breakfast.
As the sun goes down, you might decide to serve a hog roast or barbecue, or a tasty buffet in the Leather Lounge with its cosy armchairs and open fire. We can accommodate up to 47 of your guests in our stylish bedrooms. Seven of which are in the main house and boast king size beds, beautiful views and elegant, contemporary décor. Each is named after a Champagne house, our favourite being Dom Perignon, the bridal suite with four poster bed and roll top bath – an idyllic setting for your wedding night.
We look forward to welcoming you to West Tower – your home from home.
Wedding Open Evening on the 1st Tuesday of every month 4pm - 8pm.
These informal evenings are a wonderful opportunity to see our multi award winning venue fully dressed for a wedding and see just how magical your day could be at West Tower.
The house and grounds will be open to wander at your leisure giving you a glimpse as to how your dream day could turn into a beautiful reality.
Entry is complimentary and includes welcome drink on arrival with no need to pre-book.

Best Day Ever
West Tower was the most wonderful venue to get married in, they made our day so special and even with Covid happening they made sure our day was perfect. All the staff were so professional and made us and our guests feel safe. The staff have been so helpful throughout our 2 years of planning and guided us every step of the way, even on the wedding day we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everyone had an amazing time and the day was perfect. The venue is absolutely stunning inside and outside, we fell in love with West Tower and loved it more and more every time we went. Would highly recommend this venue to future brides.Sent on 20/06/2021

Our Amazing Wedding!
We don’t even know where to begin! We had the most amazing Wedding day that we could have asked for.
From the moment we first visited West Tower we fell in love with the place and knew this is where we wanted our special day!
The run up to the day was made so easy by the expert team at West Tower nothing was too much trouble even down to a surprise visit from our pup max which just completed our day.
The day itself could not have been any better if we had tried it was absolutely faultless every guest has told us how amazing the day was and this was down to the amazing team at West Tower.
The food was absolutely first class and received a compliment from everyone in attendance. All the dietary issues were catered for with ease.
A big massive thank you especially goes to Alex & Stephanie for all their amazing organising and looking after us all.
Thank you for an amazing day!

Thank you for supporting the NHS
I just want to say a massive thank you to Steph and everybody at West Tower. I am a student midwife and HCA at Ormskirk hospital. I have been taking extra shifts to help as much as possible at this hard and worrying time. The West Tower gave me free accommodation for a week while I was working back to back shifts. This saved me a lot of time as I commute from Blackpool, gave me the opportunity to get some much needed rest between shifts. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. My room was beautiful and relaxing! and I must say that was the best shower I have ever had! Totally amazed by your kindness and the support you have shown to me and many other NHS staff.Sent on 29/06/2020
