Booked this as a surprise for myself and my 64 year old mother who is usually somewhat of a daredevil. When the surprise was revealed she was quite nervous about whether she would be able to manage the course, Beth and Cam were so supportive, encouraging her to look at the course prior to putting on harnesses and giving her reassurance that they would be on hand to help her. It is solely down to them that she even attempted any of the obstacles, they explained everything so well and clearly for the group. Got mother on the course but she gradually turned more and more white so after obstacle number 3 we decided to save her blood pressure and call it quits. Beth and cam were so supportive of her, helping her back and trying to gently encourage her to try again. We didn't end up going back on or even completing the course but really feel they deserve a shout out for excellent customer service!

Ordsall Hall

Reviewed By diner19

Easy to get to, central near Sainsburys. We regularly drop by and always find something fascinating in this beautifully restored Tudor house set in child friendly Gardens. The staff and vounteers are extremely helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. A joy for children as almost everything is very hands on, from sitting at enormous banquet table with wooden plates and pewter tankards to dressing up in chain mail or gowns. Go - just drop by for a quick wander or stay for a browse and cup of coffee. When we visited they also had a beautiful display of silk work in side room. Entry free

I was completely unaware of the Gardens until we booked to see the Folksy Theatre perform here in August. We arrived early and had a lovely walk around prior to enjoying a picnic and performance in a secluded area. Lots of friendly volunteers offering assistance and information. Will be back to this hidden gem.

Although I'm not a fanatic fan of football, I do try to visit the stadiums home to famous football clubs around the country to since I'm already here.
The stadium is really massive. I joined the tour and it's well arranged and accommodates the group in an orderly manner.
There's no self-exploring in the stadium. Besides, you can get lost among the many doors.

I'm still buzzing from an amazing night at The Lowry. The company is made up of extraordinary talented dancers who work together to make an unforgettable night's entertainment. The audience was quite small - but more than made up for their size with the warmth of their reception. The dancers are athletic -gorgeous - musical, graceful and brave. A few stood out, but it's not that kind of company, they really are "collaborative". The programme was fascinating, the music well-chosen. It may have been altogether faultless as far as I was concerned. Why can't the Lowry generate a bigger audience for such an amazing troupe?
