Join us on some special themed tours to celebrate Heritage Open Days. Find out about sixteenth and seventeenth century gardening on a special tour from an 'in character' sixteenth century gardener (2pm). Join our 'Ordsall Hall Faces and Places' tour and let fascination befall you as you take a special 'behind the scenes' guided tour of Salford's jewel in the crown, Get to know some of the characters that have lived at the Hall over the centuries and learn about the building's most recent restoration (tours at 1.30pm and 3pm). We have free activity trails available and hands-on exhibitions; try on our armour, dress in the robes of a rich Tudor, imagine yourself taking part in a grand Tudor feast and find out about what people used to eat in our kitchen.
