Ordsall Hall is a piece of Tudor history just a short walk from the contemporary comings and goings of Salford Quays.
The building dates back over 820 years and the timber-framed great hall, built in the early 1500s, is a stunning example of Tudor architecture.
The manor house and gardens are free to visit with plenty of hands-on, family-friendly activities. From grinding herbs in the kitchen, clambering into the replica string and hay bed or dressing up in velvets and sitting down at the banqueting table for a make-believe feast, a visit to Ordsall Hall is a multi-sensory experience.
You could even say extra-sensory. Will you catch a glimpse of one of Ordsall Hall’s famous ghosts: The White Lady, Cecily or Sir John Radclyffe? If not, ghost nights are held by external companies – check the website to book a paranormal excursion.
The hall is fully accessible and there is a small café selling cakes and light snacks such as toasties and teacakes as well as picnic tables in the orchard. Events for children are held in the school holidays and Ordsall Hall is available for private hire for weddings, conferences and filming.
