Having visited Salford lots of times, we decided to go to Ordsall Hall in Feb half term and I am so glad we did. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted by very friendly, helpful staff who seem genuinely happy in their job. They gave us a map and a brief run down of the Hall and recommended the... More

Loved visiting here , beautiful building , very shocked as to where it's located .... What looks like the middle of a council estate ?? Well worth a visit although parking was a bit extreme with the price

So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit - we have a lot of visitors who are surprised about how the urban landscape has grown around the beautiful old Hall! Many thanks for your positive feedback. I'm sorry to hear you found the parking charge to be extreme - we thought that £2 was fairly reasonable considering it's free to... More

Situated in an "interesting" part of Salford but it has its own car park. Worth a visit although parts of has been "improved" in recent years which for us has removed some of the history of the building. Also as noted elsewhere as with a lot of these types of places you only get to see a small bit of... More

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit to the Hall - but sorry to hear that you feel some of the history was removed with the restoration. All the work was carried out by specialist craftsmen who carried out their work very sensitively, as it would have been done originally. Wherever possible they have taken the Hall back... More

A wonderful place, steeped in history! Staff all very friendly, small cafe & gift shop too. The kids loved dressing up in the Tudor clothes & Amour. Sadly.....we didn't see any of the ghosts. :( Free admission (although we made a donation) & only £2 to park the car! Brilliant!

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

So sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience. 95% of the building is actually now open with only small bits like the office and staff kitchen closed to the public so I'm surprised to hear that you weren't able to access it all. I hope that you will give us another chance at some point in the future... More

This old hall is truly a hidden gem in this area of Salford. It is surrounded by housing, businesses, retail and leisure and so unexpected a find. 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
