Scarisbrick Hall is a country house situated just to the south-east of the village of Scarisbrick in Lancashire, England.

Scarisbrick Hall was the ancestral home of the Scarisbrick family and dates back to the time of King Stephen (1135”“1154). The Scarisbrick family lived on the site from 1238 until the house was sold in 1946 to become a training college. Parts of the present building, which is considered to be one of the finest examples of Victorian Gothic architecture in England, were designed by the architect Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. The most notable feature of Scarisbrick Hall is the 100-foot tower, which is visible from many miles around. Previously owned by Sir Thomas Scarisbrick, 1st Baronet, the building is now occupied by a co-educational, independent school called Scarisbrick Hall School, and there is no public access apart from infrequent guided tours. The school was previously owned by the educational group Nord Anglia, then sold to GeMs, after GeMs sold the school unexpectedly the parents rallied together to get the school up and running again but a lot of students trying to do their GCSE's had to move schools and is now the school is being rented by the ownership group Friends of Kingswood made up of parents, teachers, and former pupils. Scarisbrick Hall is a Grade I listed building, and is on the Buildings At Risk Register. The cost of repairs to the building has been estimated at £2.46 million. As of 2011, the Hall shall be used as a registered wedding venue.
