Ordsall Hall

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?

Our Learning team provide school visits for Key Stage One and Two, as well as for Key stage three and above. These include our garden sessions and ESOL visits.

The changing contemporary exhibitions, history events and activities programme, completes a must visit experience for individuals, families, schools and organisations to come and enjoy.

The Hall and grounds are free to visit. Find out more to help plan your visit including directions, opening times and facilities available.

We welcome all children accompanied by a responsible adult. Admission is free of charge.
