Really close to Manchester centre by Metrolink. The hall has recently undergone a complete restoration and is full of furniture built under the Tudors. Oh, and there are ghosts too. The staff is friendly and helpful : special thanks to the lady who gave me a private tour.

Tucked away in the middle of houses and industrial buildings this historical attraction could so easily be missed. We had been going to visit for a while and I am so pleased we finally made it. My husband and I spent an interesting 3 hours touring this building. Friendly staff, interesting exhibits and hands on objects added to the experience.... More

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

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
