Don't come here if you're a single male. The females who operate the museum don't like single males walking around their premises. You'll be followed and starred at with fear like you're about to steal something or kick off. Regardless of how you dress or present yourself. If you're not with the elderly or children you're not welcome here. Forget... More

I'm very sorry to hear that your experience at Ordsall Hall was a less than excellent one. We pride ourselves on welcoming ALL visitors and it is concerning to hear that you didn't experience it that way. Due to fire evacuation regulations we do operate a system whereby a member of staff does need to be around wherever there are... More

I've visited twice now with my young family. Really interesting building, beautifully restored. Very helpful staff and volunteers. Boys loved exploring. Fascinating history- lots to engage my 5 & 6 year olds. Get a clip board with quiz from the front desk if your kids like that sort of thing. Amazing that it's free!

a Tudor mansion restored to full glory, with no more than a donation to visit - well worth the time. many rooms to explore and interactive displays. the gardens surrounding the hall are large. well done to all staff for the sterling job

We went to see this recently renovated hall last week, and were not disappointed! Easy to find, parking on site (about £2) and free entry to an informative self guided tour of the building made this visit a success. It was not overly busy, although a few groups were going around as well as a toddler group in situ. Lots... More

Just when you don't expect it, hidden in a massive housing estate you come across this gem: Ordsall Hall, a Tudor Manor House. How it survived at all in this location is a miracle. The house and garden are well worth a special visit. Restoration has been carried out to a high standard and sympathetic with the building. And they've... More

Ordsall Hall is hard to find without a GPS or map due to very few sign posts to help locate it, however once you do locate Ordsall hall it is very impressive. A mixture of late mediaeval, Tudor and later construction in timber and brick creates a charming and beautiful exterior enhanced by reconstructed period gardens. The house contains a... More

We stumbled upon the hall after a friend of a friend told us but we were so glad we tried it, lovely place! The staff are so friendly from opening the front door to talking through some exhibits as you walk round cannot do enough! The main hall dates back over 700 years and is beautifully restored. It has lots... More

An absolute gem of a place now surrounded by houses and industrial units. Parts dating back to 1177. Beautifully restored. A nice little cafe, lovely staff. A small gift shop and they had a few plants for sale. It's well worth a visit. John the volunteer was excellent. He came round the hall pointing out some very interesting things, very... More

Ordsall Hall is a fine example of Tudor building and events that are held there throughtout the year reflect its history and tradition over 400 years. It has interest for all the family and introduces youngsters to so much history. The building is magnificent and will be of interest to artists and architects as well as all visitors. Lovely shop...
