Getting to this hall is a bit strange as its now trapped in a housing estate and to be honest from the outside (especially with the building works) its looks rather uninviting. At first we we're actually not going to go in...but we're so glad we did. Entrance is free and so is parking, the staff, what few there are,... More

It was a fabulous museum, free to enter and the staff were helpful and informative. There was an activity for my son which he thoroughly enjoyed doing during the walk round the museum.

Wow, what a hidden gem. It's years since I've been here but I'll certainly be back regularly now. We visited with three primary school aged children who loved doing the family trails. There's so much to see and do, I really wish that more people knew about this place because it's fantastic.

Ashamed to say that despite living no more than 6 miles away from here for 44 years, I didn't realise that this hidden gem existed until recently. Fascinating place which is free to visit - great decoding quiz and other child friendly activities to do. Took about 90 minutes to get round. The staff were very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly.... More

I've lived in the area all my life and driven past many times. I went to see if I could locate where a ghost photo was taken in 2012 but couldn't find it. The house was friendly and well lit and I didn't feel anywhere was creepy. The best parts are in the old tower which has three stories. This... More

It has a sort of dark feel to it which sort of heightens your senses as you go round and you really get a feeling for the people who lived their and their comings and goings - far more so than most homes of this nature I have visited - maybe its the ghosts lol!

Me and my wife were in Bradford and decided to visit here one day. Entrance is free and there is lots of interesting things to be found. The outside of the hall is a bit of a let down but don't be put off.

Do a little research and get to know about Bradford's history... Check out the Roundheads... Newcastle and Fairfax... Visit the ghost room... It's a great place to visit and I understand there are themed overnight stays! It's interesting and inexpensive for families and there's a park next door for those with children etc.
