Bramhall Hall is a Tudor manor house in Bramhall. This beautiful building has parts of it dating back to the 14th century. Fortunately, after hundreds of years in ownership of the Davenport family, when a local industrialist Charles Nevil moved in in the late 19th century he preserved and restored the house superbly. The rooms are very well presented, particularly the chapel, with helpful, knowledgeable guides on hand, There’s a good shop inside and a café just outside in the old stables. The park with ponds, walks and play equipment for the kids mean that the whole hall and grounds are well worth a visit.
