I visited as a wedding guest

A great venue for a wedding, I was attending as a guest and had not been into the hall before. The buildings and gardens were perfect for an intimate service and lovely pictures.

A trip down memory lane, lovely location in the heart of Salford ideal for the older generations to reminisce about the past

Today we visited Santa at Ordsall and had a fantastic time. The hall itself is beautiful and so well maintained I am looking forward to retuning in better weather to look around the gardens. All the staff were so lovely and there is a nice family cozy atmosphere. The santa experience was great as it was my daughters first time... More

We took a trip to Ordsall Hall as we have been living near by but never had a chance to go in. This is because the hall is closed on Fridays and Saturdays as it is also a wedding venue which means it restricts the times you can go if you work. We managed to go on a quiet bank... More

We're very pleased to hear that you had a good day at Ordsall Hall. Like a lot of publicly owned museums we're having to branch out with what we offer to ensure that we can afford to keep the Hall open to the public the rest of the time - hence being closed on Fridays and Saturdays. We are also... More

I visited Ordsall Hall last Sunday with my two sons aged 5 & 7. On a rainy December afternoon with busy traffic on the way to Manchester due to it being almost Christmas I did wonder whether to turn back. I'm really glad I did go as it was worth the traffic! It's a beautiful building with so much history.... More

I went last sunday when there was a xmas musical performance. It was packed to the rafters. I was a little disappointed that the music was not more rousing or maybe with a tudor feel. The building is spectacular inside and out. The staff are well informed and come over to you and offer explanations and information on the various... More

We're so glad to hear that you had an enjoyable day at the Hall. The music was provided by Salford's own Music and Performing Arts Service who offer all children and young people in Salford the opportunity to get involved with music - so we think they did really well! We do realise that people have very differing tastes though,... More

Me and my husband got married here in October 2015. Firstly I would like to say the venue is amazing for a wedding, our guests loved the venue and we got some gorgeous photos of the day. We had quite a few children at the wedding and they had so much to do, looking for ghosts and playing in the... More

A group from Pendle Over 50s club recently visited Ordsall Hall in Salford. Although not easy to find in the busy traffic around Manchester a very warm welcome greeted our group with refreshments to hand in the Great Hall and clean, modern toilets available. After refreshment our guide Lauren took the large group around the building and in a very... More

Ordsall Hall is easy to get to, has it's own car park which has a charge, although the Hall is free. You are left to explore at your leisure but can have a guide and each room has an explanation of it's history. Some rooms have interactive items which are hard not to have a play with no matter how... More

Would have loved the hall anyway, but our day was massively enhanced by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff and volunteers. They were so ready and willing with information and stories, that what for us started as a stop off en route to my graduation, ended up being a really enjoyable and memorable part of our trip. They are... More
