Bramall Hall online: information and bookings

Bramall Hall is an outstanding example of the black and white “magpie effect” Tudor style, England's distinctive contribution to world architecture. Dating back to the 14th century, the Hall has grown and evolved, and as a result, today's visitors can discover six centuries of fine examples of varied architecture, decoration, plaster ceilings, furniture and paintings as well as gleaning fascinating glimpses of social history.

The Hall stands in a park which was landscaped by its Victorian owner Charles Nevill after the style of Capability Brown, to give a grand vista over the terraces, lawns and lakes to the trees beyond.

The main rooms of the house, all of which are beautifully restored, include the Great Hall with its magnificent oak fireplace on either side of which are two stone felon's heads. These once stood at the gates of the Hall. The felon's head, the crest of the Davenport family, symbolises the traditional power of the Lord of the Manor to sentence local criminals to death.

In the Ballroom and Chapel are wall paintings which tell a story of life and religious turmoil in Tudor England.The Hall's kitchen has been painstakingly and authentically restored to give a true flavour of Victorian life below stairs. Bramall Hall's greatest treasure is a sixteenth century heraldic table carpet. Nearly twenty feet long it bears the Tudor shield and records family marriages back to 1397.

The Hall and Park are now owned and cared for by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council. There are regular concerts, exhibitions and workshops to cater for a wide range of tastes. Licenced for civil marriage ceremonies and the perfect venue for wedding receptions and corporate entertainment.
