Really well worth a visit if you are in the northern part of Stoke on Trent. I believe there is a bus service but car parking was easy when we had a went, Should you wish to have a wedding service there it is an excellent venue.

Free parking. The hall has been here for a few hundred years in different guises. Staff are friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Excellent place to visit if looking for how people lived many, many years ago as all the areas open to look at are in period theme. It is a comfortable place to visit. Presently decorated for Christmas and looks wonderful.... More

Ford Green Hall is a 17th century yeoman farmer's house located in a suburb of Stoke-on-Trent. The hall contains a number of rooms, dressed as if were the 17th/18th centuries. Entrance is £3, with £2 concessions. The visit was relatively brief, but the hall is only small, so I wouldn't expect to stay much longer than 45 minutes (perhaps an... More

Well worth a visit. Has a fascinating history. Was owned by Quakers at one stage. Strange and eerie in some areas but a wonderful experience. Please go.

Love it here, at the back of the property there is a lovely herb garden and you would think you were back in the Middle Ages, only spoiled by the fact that there's a dirty great eyesore of a car wash right across the road spoiling the view from the widows ! The little tea shop and gift shop is... More

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
