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 5 days a week throughout the year. Surrounded by landscaped grounds with a lovely picnic area, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings, interactive school sessions with our experienced facilitators, holiday activities, fascinating guided tours and a small café and shop. The Hall re-opened in May 2011 following a two year £6.5 million restoration project. Ordsall Hall is right next to Salford Quays just minutes from Manchester City Centre on the tram (the nearest stop is Exchange Quay!). We welcome all children accompanied by a responsible adult. Admission is free of charge.
The whole Hall apart from one small room right at the top is accessible with lift access to the upper floors. Access to the East Wing for our visitors who use wheelchairs is via a path outside the building as internally there are three steps down and three steps up to enter that part of the building.
