I visited Bolling Hall on a whim-and am so pleased I did. It was a cold January afternoon, and I followed the signs to Bolling Hall, as I wasn't in any rush to be anywhere in particular. The Hall is in the middle of a...More

OK, as it goes. The local authority-owned house is a bit of a mish-mash, inside and out. The most interesting rooms (excepting the bedroom with the alleged ghost) are on the ground floor. Stained glass heraldry in the housebody window is lovely, and the back...More

Always looks closed. Old fashioned and grumpy staff. Poorly labelled displays. Needs a thorough overhaul.

Never know this place existed until it popped up in Google. Short walk from Bradford centre and next to a lovely park. The hall was great to walk around, fantastic stained glass, and some nice little bits about the civil war.

Good source of history of historical Bradford families since 1100’s , current building from 1400’s onwards . Lots of artefacts to see including the famous ghost room & original stained glass. The museum is free & staff are friendly

I visited here, after visiting another museum in the area. The hall is really well kept and was very interesting. Its a shame that more people don't visit this, and that the garden isn't kept a little better.

Good museum, they have little activities where the kids can find things in the rooms which helps to keep them entertained whilst adults read the information. Free to go they just ask for donations. A shame the day we went that a couple of mums...More
