Part of Bradford District Museums and Galleries service, Bolling Hall Museum offers visitors a fascinating journey through the lives and times of the Bradford families for whom it provided a home over five hundred years.

Located just a mile from Bradford city centre and situated in a quiet, leafy garden, Bolling Hall was for many years the seat of two important land-owning families, the Bollings and the Tempests.

With parts of the building dating from the Medieval, Bolling Hall is a rambling mixture of styles with every nook and cranny packed with history. During the Civil War the household supported the Royalist cause, and the house provided a stronghold during the 'siege of Bradford'.

Rooms are furnished and decorated to give a taste of life during different periods of the house's history.

Bradford District Museums & Galleries are a family friendly organisation.  We regularly organise free events, activities and workshops across all four sites particularly during the school holiday periods – check for the latest events and activities on offer.

Supported using public funding from Arts Council England.
