Welcome to Wythenshawe Hall
Wythenshawe Hall former home of the Tatton family for over 600 years, and now owned by Manchester City 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 ever after by the people of Manchester and beyond. The Hall served as an art gallery and museum until its closure in 2010; with the help of the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall volunteer group, which was established in 2012, the Hall is once again open to visitors to explore this much-loved landmark of Wythenshawe.
