This is a lovely visit at anytime of year. Atmosphere is relaxed and informal for a nice unhurried explore. The room settings are very well done some in fact are quite beautiful. An interesting and free of charge visit. What's not to like?

My wife and I visited Bolling Hall recently. Bradford was my home town from age 6 months to age 21 when l moved to Riddlesden. I visited the Hall whilst at junior school and this is the first time since then that I have been. My wife has never visited before. We both found the visit very interesting and informative....

Bolling Hall is amazing - it is hidden away in the middle of a housing estate, but so worth a visit. From the Doomsday book, to the civil war, ghosts, war, death masks, it has it all. There is something for everyone here; my favourite is the Georgian room, it’s beautiful. It is a shame the gardens aren't given a... More

A tour of Bolling Hall is like a brief journey through time. Despite its relatively small size and unassuming location, in the middle of a Bradford housing estate, its fabric oozes history, atmosphere and charm. The rooms are neatly furnished, with a host of unusual and interesting artefacts, depicting different chapters in the history of the house from medieval times,... More

Hidden within a housing estate in Bradford one simply must visit Bolling Hall. Steeped in history this Grade I listed building is a must see for anyone interested in social history or architecture. Built over different periods this building holds interest for young and old alike. Admission is free.

Use to live nere here and I use to visit it quite often, A great place to visit and 100% free there is a lot to see of what it use to be like to live in that day and age. Worth checking out if you are in the area and its close to the city centre about 1 mile... More

A tucked-away curiosity. Historic building of mixed styles and ages in the middle of a housing estate Not a pretty building and the grounds are uninspiring
