Visited many times since childhood and the enjoyment continues. Wonderful to see the old working kitchen and original features. Grounds are lovely to peruse too. A very relaxing day out.

I visited Bolling Hall, Bradford, recently having found a leaflet advertising it. This is well worth a visit being the oldest building in Bradford with some parts going back to the 14th century. It is stuff full of artifacts from the various periods of the house which are well explained. The house has important connections to the English civil war,... More

Some great artifacts here , especially pertaining to the English Civil War , which the hall played a part in . The receptionist made us a coffee for a reasonable price... More

I took my daughter here because she is obsessed with history and she loved it. It has nice rooms but not a lot of things for children to do. I can't remember seeing a lift and if they haven't its a lot of stairs if you have a pram. The shop is reasonably priced but don't sell loads

Built around the 14th century when the area of Bolling was all park land and not the slightly run down area it is now, although there are still some Victorian Villas on the approach road; this stunning old house has a special place in Bradford's history.
