Ordsall Hall

Ordsall Hall Ordsall Hall is a magnificent half timbered Hall in Salford, recently reopened to the public after a 2 year restoration.
(250)

Ordsall Hall is a historic house museum and garden, wedding and meeting venue dating back over 820 years. We are near to Salford Quays and Manchester City Centre and are open to visit from Monday - Thursday and Sunday afternoons. Throughout history the Hall has been put to many uses - a family home, working men's club and church hall. The most important period of its life is undoubtedly as the family seat of the Radclyffe family who resided here for over 300 of those years. We re-opened in 2011 after a 2 year conservation and restoration project. We look forward to welcoming you!
