Ordsall Hall and Gardens - Salford's Grade 1 listed Tudor manor - was first recorded in 1177. Since then, it has been home to medieval gentry, Tudor nobility, Catholics loyal to the crown, butchers, farmers, an Earl, an artist, priests, scout troops, mill workers, cows and several ghosts!
Today, it is an engaging museum, wedding and conference venue open throughout the year. Surrounded by two acres of organically managed gardens, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings, meeting rooms and a small café.
