Festivals & Heritage

Hardwick Hall is one of the earliest examples of the English interpretation of the style, which came into fashion, having slowly spread from Florence. Its arrival in Britain fortuitously coincided with the period when it was no longer necessary or legal to fortify a domestic dwelling.

It was the formidable Bess of Hardwick who first created Hardwick in the late 1500s. In the centuries since then her descendants, farmers, gardeners, builders, decorators, embroiders and craftsmen of all kinds have contributed and made Hardwick their creation. Today visitors can explore the fruits of that labour. Why not combine it with a visit to Hardwick Old Hall? Though the Old Hall is now roofless, visitors can still ascend four floors to view surviving decorative plasterwork, as well as the kitchen and service rooms with our audio tour.
