Hardwick Hall


The National Trust has closed all of its houses, gardens, parks, toilets, cafes and shops until further notice to restrict the spread of Coronavirus. Please do not travel to any of their sites until further instruction


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.
