Ordsall Hall is the oldest building in Salford and the third oldest building in Greater Manchester, dating back to 1177. It is one of the region’s finest examples of an Elizabethan timbered manor-house and is Grade 1 listed with a vivid history of aristocratic owners and legends of the Guy Fawkes plot. The site is also well known for its resident Ghosts who attract many visitors to explore the hall. With intricate plasterwork and carved wooden furniture, the site is the perfect day out for a visitor to Salford Quays, within walking distance of Old Trafford Stadium and Manchester Ship Canal.
Step back into Tudor England and come and explore our hands-on museum with Tudor fancy dress, re-enactment and craft activities. The site is free to enter and has extensive grounds and gardens. There is also an onsite shop and café to enjoy.
