The Shrigley Hall Hotel is in Pot Shrigley, a village some 8 miles from Macclesfield and 1hr 45 minutes from London.The venue is ideally located for exploring the Peak District and there are local ales to be had in neighbouring village pubs. There are the cultural delights of Macclesfield, with its Silk Museum and an early 20th Century Mill. The National Trust’s Chatsworth House is within driving distance.
