About
Bramall Hall, owned by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, is a superb example of a Tudor Manor House with origins dating back to the Middle Ages. The Hall, one of the most beautiful treasures of England, is of great national importance. The magnificent 16th Century wall paintings, striking Elizabethan plaster ceiling, the Victorian Kitchens and Servants’ Quarters give this Hall its unique charm. The Hall stands in 70 acres of parkland designed in the Victorian Romantic style. It offers woodland walks with intriguing glimpses of the Hall itself and of the brooks and lakes. The Stables Kitchen is an independent business located in Bramhall Park but is not owned by Stockport MBC. Bramall Hall offers guided tours, school visits and is used as a wedding and private function venue.

Bramhall Hall is a stately home located in the heart of Stockport, Greater Manchester.

On a hot Wednesday afternoon I enjoyed a lovely and fascinating tour of this historic house.

This manor house was built by a family called the Davenports
who then lived in this house many centuries ago.

The building has beautiful glass windows and amazing Elizabethan ceilings that are unique.

Ground Floor

There is the main dining room in which the Davenports ate on with polished cutlery. It also includes a beautiful fireplace

There is also a church room which is laid out like an actual church.

There is a solar room. Whenever the Davenports hated noise they would come up to this room which is like a conservatory for some peace and relaxation. On my visit there was soft soothing music and there was an old tea pot which gave an afternoon tea feel.

In the Entertainment room there was a large snooker table where Mr Davenport would invite guests round. There is also lovely pieces of china. They loved travelling particularly to Japan and the Far East.

The Chamber room was exquisite as it had beautiful chandeliers and Elizabethan ceilings which was one of the best at that time. It included beautiful artwork of their 11 children.

The bedrooms had lovely furniture. One of them was where the mother gave birth to her children.

The guest dining room was bright and spacious with beautiful
views onto the garden.

The kitchen was fascinating to see. It was a large kitchen with
all the necessary utensils such as a peeler, weighing scales, rolling pin etc. In the pantry there were all the jars and bottles they used during that era.

The servants room included a sink and all the items they would use to serve the Davenports their food.

The last room on the tour is the potion room. When you enter that room you immediately smell lavender. This was where they made perfumes and potions.

It was a beautiful day out full of sightseeing, culture and history taking you on a ride to the Tudor era.

There is no lift in the building.

Restrictions remain in this building so advanced booking is needed when visiting the hall.

Being a local resident, I enjoyed a lovely walk through the wonderful woods that lead up to Bramall Hall this morning. After a drink at the cafe there and feeding the ducks, I decided to visit the Hall itself, something I like to do every few years at least. The admission is only £5, even less for concessions and free to leisure card holders. And what a wonderful place it is. So many beautiful rooms to walk through, along with some interactive screens that tell you more about each room. The information posts are quite low down making them difficult to read, but that aside the high standards of presentation and care make Bramall Hall a genuine step back in time. A real gem and treasured Hall that Cheshire (Stockport) should be very proud of

A walk in the park, an amazing historic building and a really good cafe.
Well worth a visit.
As well as the busy area by the hall, you can follow various quieter paths over the bridge into the woods.

I walked around Bramhall Park with a friend of mine who lives in the area, it was a lovely spring evening and the sun was setting.

This is a well kept and lovely park with pathways, woodland, water and lots of greenery. It covers around 70 acres and is a peaceful setting in a well respected area.

In the middle of the park is Bramhall Hall and this is a beautiful Tudor style Manor House with leaded windows and loads of character. Looks like it dates back to the Middle Ages and the grounds were decorated with well cared for gardens and so many different flowers.

There was a cafe, but as we were walking it was late evening and therefore it was closed.

If you fancy a walk, of any distance, and peace and quiet then head over to Bramhall Park.

Grounds and park are lovely. The house is very interesting with incredible Tudor wall paintings. I was amazed that it is only £5 or £3.75 for concessions. Food at the cafe was very good, though the indoor cafe is not open until September. A very enjoyable visit.

Beautifully restored early tudor hall - with fantastic early tudor painted walls, Elizabethan era ceilings.. and editions from Arts &Craft period renovation (checkbout the candlesticks in photo). I like that furnished and kitchens, dairy/ pantry etc open as it gives you understanding of how people lived in it as well as the grander rooms which still had a sence of comfort/homelyness. Information in visitor centre on civil war diary really interesting.

Would have liked a bit more information around context of the hall ... ie, how did the family come to build it, where did their money come from, how did they relate to wider community around the hall... i assume as not upgraded in 18th & early 19th centuries, the family didnt have major influx of cash from Empire/slavery, but it would be good if there was more context of how the hall sits in history...

At £5 per adult, it is really a bargin.

The Hall has improved out-of-sight from what it used to be. You can tell they’ve put so much thought into the experience - it’s now an engaging, interesting exhibition around what has always been a stunning building. The museum experience now does it justice. Well worth the admission fee.

When we arrived we had the place to ourselves. A beautiful building with so much history - Particularly for us as our family tree had shown that we had ancestors who'd lived at Bramall. The staff were really keen to chat and help us discover what we could about our past, and there is a good shop with a film and more information.about the history of the house.
Lots of space for walking, very reasonable entry fee, a car park (not free) within yards of the main entrance, snacks and drinks available. Very Covid safe. Would recommend.

We have not yet been able to visit inside Bramhall Hall, but it certainly is a sight to behold from the outside. We love the park and the woods. There is limited parking though - and it can be tight to get a child out of a car seat. The cafe is great and very reasonably priced!

Great place to take a long walk and mentally switch off, free parking and lots available around the park/Hall. Great variety when walking the old hall, lakes, woods and plenty of open space for dogs and kids to run about. I believe there is also a coffee shop/snack bar but didn't visit.
