Fascinating to think that this incredible Tudor hall was hidden behind a 'mask' of brick terraced houses until the 1950's! You would never believe that it had been converted to terraced houses as the restoration is so perfect. They have lots of special events and themed days, the next one is a Pirate theme!

We visited here when they had an open day and were amazed at some of the old stories and the pictures of how it was flooded and restored. It's got a lovely little café and there were plenty of activities and things to look at and try. Definitely worth a visit and great to see they are looking after such... More

This historic property is located in Smallthorpe which for the most part is a bit of a dump. The house itself has seen better days and while the curators have made something of an effort to portray what life would have been like for the inhabitants, it does not quite do the place justice. It's okay for a brief visit,... More

Visited here yesterday and they had lovely activities for the younger children; medieval jousting which looked like great fun. Well preserved place with a beautiful garden that also backs on to the nature reserve at the back which was lovely and a good safe place to walk. Interesting talk and look around at the history of the house; well researched... More

I used to visit this place with primary school and over the years there are always rumours this place is going to close and that would be a shame. It makes a really unique day out with the family and I would highly recommend putting in the effort to go and visit.

We'd been planning to visit Ford Green Hall for some time and were not disappointed. It is a lovely old building, is well kept and has a very interesting history. It isn't huge so doesn't take long to go round so the kids won't get bored!! Refreshments are available at a reasonableprice. Lots of parking and walking/cycling around the lake... More

This place is lovely, loads of parking, and cycle and walking paths close by as well. They put lots of events on over the year and hold weddings. We went for a Tudor day on a Sunday recently, the staff and atmosphere were great. The building itself has recently been taken over by a community group. Its steeped in history... More
