Ordsall Hall has had a long and interesting history with many different uses since it was first mentioned in records in 1177!

The Hall is FREE to visit and is open to the public throughout the year. Find out about our opening hours, how to find us and parking information.

Today, it is a welcoming and friendly historic house telling the story of the Hall and some of the people who made it their home.

There is so much to do and discover! Dress up as a Tudor, try on some chainmail, discover some of the foods that would have been cooked at the Hall in the 1500s, pretend you are having a feast around the table in our Great Hall, find out about the Pre-Raphaelite artist who lived here, listen to the story of the 450 year old Radclyffe bed, chat to our friendly staff and volunteers, visit our allotment and herb garden, explore the sculptures in the gardens and much, much more.

We have lots of events going on throughout the year for all ages – from quizzes in the school holidays to Shakespeare in the gardens, regular guided tours, concerts, workshops and talks – find out more about our events.

Pick up a souvenir of your visit in our shop and treat yourself to some well deserved cake and coffee after you have toured the Hall.

We welcome school visits and group tours and the Hall can also be hired for meetings and weddings.
