Ordsall Hall has reopened its doors for the first time since November last year.


The Salford manor’s opening was welcomed by staff, who said on Twitter they were “excited to announce that the historic rooms, museum galleries, shop and café will reopen.”


The hall opened to the public Tuesday 18 May.


One Twitter user said:

“Beautiful news! I look forward to enjoy again our favourite place!!”




Plans to reopen came after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson broadcast the roadmap of easing coronavirus lockdown restrictions across the country.


On April 1, Ordsall Hall published their own roadmap of plans to reopen on their website. 


They said their gardens would reopen first on 29 March, and then the hall itself would reopen in May.


As of Tuesday, Ordsall Hall is open Monday and Tuesday from 10am-4pm.


They are also open Sunday afternoon from 1pm-4pm.


The museum shop, cafe and rose gardens will be free entry for walk up visitors. 


However, visitors will need to pre-book if they would like to visit the Hall’s Heritage spaces and museum galleries.


Visitors will be asked to use track and trace when using the shop and cafe as a walk up.


Most items will not be available to touch and dressing up is currently not permitted.
