Guided Tours

Why not take a tour and see behind the scenes at The Bridgewater Hall? Our entertaining tour guides will tell you about the history and architecture of Manchester’s iconic international concert hall. You will also have the opportunity to visit parts of the building not usually open to the public, including the atmospheric undercroft where you can see how the Hall is built on giant springs! Please note the undercroft is accessed by a flight of metal steps; all other areas of the tour are fully accessible.

Visiting with Children

The Bridgewater Hall welcomes families with small children to family-friendly concerts and events, and for these events family tickets or discounts for children are usually available. Please note all persons attending a ticketed event must have a ticket, regardless of age. For more information about the full range of family-friendly concerts and events at the Hall, please see the What’s On listings. Families are also welcome to enjoy our informal free concerts such as the A Little Bite Music series and occasional performances in the Stalls Café Bar.

Our formal classical concerts demand high levels of concentration from the audience and performers, and are not suitable for babies and young children. We do not allow pre-school aged children in the Auditorium for these events. Older children attending formal classical concerts must be able to concentrate for the duration of the performance without disturbing other members of the audience. Please note that anyone who has to leave the Auditorium during a performance may not be able to re-enter except at the interval.

For all performances, under 14s must be accompanied by an adult (18+). Where an event has a specific age restriction (eg over 18s only) then this regulation takes precedence.

If you are unsure about the suitability of a concert for children, or need any further information about family visits to the Hall, please ask when booking your tickets.
