The Hall

The front of Wythenshawe Hall




Wythenshawe Hall was the home of the Tatton family for over 600 years, and is now owned by the Council. The Hall, and the surrounding 250 acres of park land, were given to the city by Lord and Lady Simon in 1926, to be enjoyed by the people of Manchester and beyond. The Hall served as an art gallery and museum until its temporary closure in 2010.

Wythenshawe Hall was damaged by a fire in March 2016, but - fortunately - the Fire Service did an amazing job and saved the building from complete destruction. Up until the fire, The Friends of Wythenshawe Hall had been working in partnership with us to open the Hall on a regular basis for themed, seasonal events.

The official re-opening of Wythenshawe Hall took place in October 2022, and the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall continue to support the Council. They host monthly open days on Sundays from 11am until 4pm. Dates for 2024 are:

  • Sunday 25 February
  • Sunday 31 March (Easter Sunday)
  • Sunday 21 April
  • Sunday 19 May
  • Sunday 30 June
  • Sunday 21 July
