About National Trust Hardwick Hall

An Elizabethan masterpiece

Welcome to Hardwick, whose stunning houses and beautiful landscape have been created by a cast of thousands.

It was the formidable 'Bess of Hardwick' who first created Hardwick in the 1500s. In the centuries since then her descendants, farmers, gardeners, builders, decorators, embroiderers and craftsmen of all kinds have contributed and made Hardwick their creation. We’d like you to explore and enjoy Hardwick and in the process discover the lives, loves and adventures of the creators of Hardwick.

This year (for the first time) IGPOTY is coming to Hardwick inside the hall with the very latest competition 12 winners displayed on our custom indoor structure. The exhibition takes place in the Great Kitchen and the Serving Room of this grand building.
