Our Location: The Ribble Valley

Stonyhurst is located in heart of the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Northwest of England.

The location is stunning and peaceful.  The other major landowner in the region is the Queen, through her Duchy of Lancaster.  Royal biographer Sarah Bradford revealed in her book, Elizabeth, that the Queen herself would retire to the Ribble Valley if she could!
