Attraction in Manchester
Wythenshawe Hall is a splendid half-timbered house dating from Tudor times, set in the beautiful grounds of Wythenshawe Park in south Manchester. It was the home of the Tatton family for nearly four hundred years and has a long and eventful history, including a dramatic role in English Civil War.
The oldest part of the Hall dates from around 1540 and original woodwork, workmen's marks and an intricately-painted frieze still survive from this period. Over the next four hundred years the Hall was further developed with the addition of the library wing and a tennants' hall. A visit to the Hall today therefore provides a fascinating insight into the changing history of the area.
