Hardwick Hall, Gardens, Park & Stainsby Mill Description

One of Britain’s foremost Elizabethan houses and a magnificent statement of the wealth and authority of its builder, Bess of Hardwick. Like a huge glass lantern, the house dominates the surrounding area and contains outstanding collections of 16th-century furniture, tapestries and needlework. Walled courtyards enclose fine gardens, orchards and a herb garden, and the surrounding country park contains rare breeds of cattle and sheep.

Note:

  • Due to limited lighting, visitors wishing to make a close study of tapestries and textiles should avoid dull days early and late in the season
  • To avoid congestion, access to the house may be limited at peak periods
  • Visitors are advised to allow 45 minutes to tour the house
  • The remains of Hardwick Old Hall in the grounds are in the guardianship of English Heritage (01246 850431)
