Hardwick Hall

The National Trust's Hardwick Hall is located just a 30 minutes drive from Derby. 

The Hall was built by Bess of Hardwick in the 1590s and has remained unaltered since: yet its huge windows and high ceilings make it feel strikingly modern.

Climbing up through the house, from one spectacular floor to the next, is a thrilling architectural experience.
