What a Gem and Free

This is a must see, don't be put off by the outside, the museum is fascinating and even has a code breaking trail to keep the children interested.

We were brought here by friends, and although the outside of the property looked rather austere and neglected, a wonderfully atmospheric treat awaited us inside! The building is full of interesting artifacts, there is an informative film to watch, and tales of hauntings to add to a place which seems to be a delightful time warp. The curator was very... More

We visited Bolling Hall as a detour. It's a wonderfully surprising house with many treasures. It's council run so it's free to visit. You can make a donation in one of the boxes scattered about the house. I particularly liked the collection of old keys and the relics from the English Civil War. There is a small and free car...

Visit during a weekend with friends from Shipley. Free to get in and have to say we were there nearly 2 hours. Watched a very interesting video presentation abiut Bradford and cracked the code in all the rooms. Very atmospheric.

Great place to visit. We had a school trip here a very long time ago and I can remember all the ghost stories we would tell each other. Fast forward 20 years and its still as spooky. The staff do an excellent job here and that ghost room still sends shivers up and down my spine. Lots of history and... More

My son went with his school and said it was one of the best trips he has ever had he said some people were scared but he said it was great. He recommends it.

We had a relatively enjoyable last minute family trip to Bolling Hall Museum, it is steeped in history and each room you venture into has snippets of information which I really enjoyed. As it is a museum it isn't really enjoyable for children but we managed to keep our 5 children intrigued enough, especially with the story of the haunted... More
