Hardwick Hall - An Elizabethan Masterpiece

It was the formidable Bess of Hardwick who first created Hardwick in the late 1500s, but it was Robert Symthson who designed this magnificent house.

In 2014, we mark the 400th anniversary of Robert Smythson with a series of celebrations, including pop up workshops, tours and talks, where you will discover what influenced Smythson's work and the story behind the stone.

Hardwick offers visitors a year round experience, from colourful herbaceous borders and prize winning vegetables that are used in the restaurant to the picturesque circular parkland walks and plenty of family friendly activities.
