English for speakers of other languages (ESOL)

ESOL group at Salford Museum and Art Gallery

ESOL Visits

Please note that Lark Hill Place is closed  to the public for a temporary re-display in early 2018 so we are not able to take any ESOL visits between 3rd January and 6th February 2018. Our learning services  will resume as normal from the 6th February onwards.

Visits with your ESOL group

We welcome ESOL groups at all levels at Salford Museum and Art Gallery and are very keen for tutors and students to get involved and find out about life in Salford in the past.

As part of your visit we can arrange one or more of these museum-led sessions. Visits cost £3.50 per person.

Lark Hill Place

Go back into the past and visit Lark Hill Place; a typical northern street during Victorian times, with shops and look at how people used to live. Dress up and find out about everyday life!

Victorian Gallery

Learn about the Victorian age in Salford and find out about our paintings in our Victorian Gallery with the help of a guide. Practice your art and description skills and learn more about life in the past.

Together these sessions last one and a half hours and are appropriate for learners at all levels.

Self-guided groups

We also welcome self-guided groups. Please let us know you are coming by telephoning 0161 778 0821.
