So as a 29 year old local resident I have visited The half-timbered Tudor house more times than I can remember, and each time it always looks worse! Wythenshawe hall has so much history since being built around 1540. The most important is probably the unsuccessful defence by Robert Tatton from Oliver Cromwell's forces during the Civil war. Most iconic... More

thanks to the friends of Wythenshawe Hall, the hall is slowly but surely coming good, the tea rooms are now open and there are lots of events planned for 2014 including a 1940's themed day. Well done FOWH because of you dedication and tireless work the people of Wythenshawe will have a part of their heritage reinstated.

I have visited this Hall many times since I was a child,picnicked in the park and have brought friends and family to to see it, all of whom are always impressed.

We were lucky enough to be in the park for a 5k funrun and discovered this house was open for the day to the public. It is beautiful but so sad, because of the damage being done to the property with rain coming in furniture and paintings have been put into storage, so you only saw empty rooms. Gorgeous fire-places,... More

An amazing building, with fantastic stories to be told. Very interesting for all ages, it would be nicer if it were open to the public all the time

Nice play area and the community farm although very small was ok for a free place the kids could go... More

I was there for an event & now, due to cuts in the council, the hall has passed to Libraries & parks. The Art Gallery has removed all it's contents & it is empty with patches where the paintings & looking glasses once were, & boarded up. There is talk of a local group managing it but one must assume... More

When are the powers that be going to do something about preserving this beautiful and important building. I walked around it last week and it is beginning to fall apart. If it is neglected much longer it will end up needing to be demolished ( or is that plan? ) I know that finances are short at the moment but... More

We were so sad to see the state of Wythenshawe Hall (15/04/12) broken windows and boarded up. We hope in the future to be able to see its interiors.

My husband and I got married in the Grandfather Room at Wythenshawe Hall 10 years ago and it was just lovely. I was new to Manchester and knew very little about it so was completely taken with it. Having lived within a few miles of it ever since, I've spent many happy afternoons at, and around the hall in Wythenshawe... More
