Ordsall Hall was first recorded in 1177. Since then, it has been home to medieval gentry, Tudor nobility, Catholics loyal to the crown, butchers, farmers, an Earl, an artist, priests, scout troops, mill workers, cows and several ghosts!
Today, it is an engaging heritage site open to visitors 5 days a week throughout the year. Surrounded by landscaped grounds, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings and a small cafe. The Hall re-opened in May 2011 following a two year £6.5 million restoration project.
Explore the hall and discover what life was like in Tudor Salford. See the Radclyffe Bed, check out one of the exhibitions, bring a picnic to eat in the orchard, stroll around the gardens and keep your eyes peeled for the famous ghosts....
Contemporary exhibitions, history events and a varied activities programme, completes a must visit experience for individuals, families, schools and organisations.
The Hall and grounds are free to visit.
