I visited here with work, so we had booked out the venue and did not do a traditional tour. However, the fantastic day we had there made me keen to return with my family. The hall is a 5 min walk from Exchange Quay metrolink - really easy to find. It's rather oddly placed amongst modern houses and industrial buildings,... More

Right in the middle of what appears to be a busy industrial area is Ordsall Hall. Great day out for children amongst the architecture, grounds, and stories of the Gunpowder Plot. We went there before, after a last renovation, for the Hog Roast day and brought my daughters little friends - great day out with costumes and stories of the... More

Ordsall Hall is an absolute historical gem and shouldn't be missed. There is much to do and see both inside and outside this wonderfully restored building. There are tours, by the very committed volunteers, which last just over an hour and cost £2pp and are very well worthwhile to get the best out of this site. There is plenty of... More

A stately home/museum-type place probably isn't the first thing that would spring to mind when choosing a good day out for a small child, but in this case, we chose well! The setting of Ordsall Hall is unexpected, it hides in the middle of a perfectly ordinary housing estate in Salford just waiting to be discovered. A leisurely trip round... More

A black and white Tudor gem sat in the middle of a Salford estate at the rear Its recently been renovated and new gardens laid out. You can picnic outside or view the artifacts in the interior. Great for families and parking is easy as the car park is at the side. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. Don't forget... More
