I have passed this place many times & decided to visit. What is on view to see is very interesting but whole areas of the building is not open to the public which is very disappointing given the size of the place. You are in & out in 30 minutes tops. Not worth going out of your way for unless... More

It is well worth the effort to find it and visit - you need a couple of hours but could do it in an hour if you were in a hurry. Great friendly... More

What a magnificent wonderful magical place. The place is full of history and ghosts im not going to give anything away but believe me you really dont want to miss the opportunity to visit. It does have a pay and display but its not dear. It really is a must place to go

Excellent hall and history and what made my visit even more interesting was the interaction and history lesson to visiting school children, yes I did stay and listen to the history given by the "period dressed staff". The hall is free, but please give a donation - parking is £2, there is a small cafe which is reasonably priced. The... More

Entry to the hall is free although any donation is welcome. Good access for disabled people and wheelchairs. Toilets with baby changing facilities too. There was a small cafe but we... More

Went to Ordsall Hall with a baby, grandparent and husband in tow! Great little place, total surprise. Staff were friendly and helpful and the house itself is fascinating and packed with history. Beautiful gardens, great exhibits and fantastic interactive elements for older children. We will definitely return. Even better, it's free - parking is also available on the site for... More
