“great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We visited here last year, it has been under threat of closure by the council but I believe this has now been lifted. My son was learning about the Tudors at school and we went along to Ford Green Hall on a Sunday as they had a Tudor day, with people in costumes, traditional dancing from that time, Henry VIII plus lots of things for the children to do. There was even a hog roast! My son has also visited with school. I think its a great place and very historical and more should be made of it, with more theme days, more advertising its a little gem. There are cycle paths, lakes etc close by so a day out is planned again soon.

“For an absolute history buff - not much to see.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Visited Ford Green Hall with my 20 year old daughter last year and we were both quite disappointed. We are usually enthralled by historic buildings (walk round touching the walls, etc.) but felt there wasn't that much to see there. We were round and out in about twenty minutes. Admittedly, it is a small hall but we felt unfulfilled, as if we'd missed something. Maybe we had!
