Visit Salford | Uncover the history in the city
Ordsall Hall - Salford's Grade 1 listed Tudor manor house - was first recorded in 1177. Since then, it has been home to medieval gentry, Tudor nobility, Catholics loyal to the crown, butchers, farmers, an Earl, an artist, priests, scout troops, mill workers, cows and several ghosts!
Today, it is an engaging heritage site open to visitors for 6 days a week throughout the year. Surrounded by landscaped grounds, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings and a small cafe. The Hall underwent a two year £6.5 million restoration project.
A historic bed, that has been lost for centuries, has finally returned to the hall, the bed dating back to the 1570's in now back in its rightful place in the Star Chamber.
Why not bring a picnic to eat in the orchard and then enjoy a peaceful stroll around the house and gardens?
