Whilst visiting the gardens (as it was a weekend and the new main hall was closed) of Hardwick Hall, we thought we would see the Old Hall. Unfortunately due to refurbishment work, the Old Hall is closed too. The gardens were a bit dead too tbh. It was September and straight after Covid lockdown. On a plus the Hardwick Inn on the exit road has lovely food and drink and well worth a visit.

The Old Hall has Re-Opened!!! And they have definitely improved the brick work to make it look cleaner etc… original brickwork still there but the odd repairs but this has to be done. You don’t go through the shop part anymore just someone on the entrance checking cards for NT and EH was nice to go back and enjoy once again, amazing views as always xx

Not quite sure what to expect, but were pleased that we stopped at this on our way through the area.
The trust and English Heritage have done a fantastic job of getting this relic up and running, so much of it to see and considering the age well preserved and still preserving.
We spent a lot of time going through the property looking into everything we could and were allowed to do so.
Onto the roof area the views are very rewarding (considering the steps up) however you do not seem to notice them as there are several floors to stop of at and admire the work and the views.
Well worth the visit and recommend a visit if nearby.

We are English Heritage members, so get free entry. If we go to Hardwick Hall then we usually have a quick look around the Old Hall as well. The view from the top is quite nice.

However, I don't think I would pay the entrance fee to get in. That isn't to say that there is anything particularly wrong with the Old Hall, there are just other attractions in the area which are better value for money.

Worth it is you are an English Heritage member though.

Seeing the ruins allows ones imagination to fill in the gaps and create the illusion of what the old hall used to look like.

The grounds that surround Hardwick Hall are well worth visiting especially in summer. The walks around the grounds are interesting and the people inside the hall are knowledgeable. They have a decent cafe/restaurant which is worth a visit.

Next to the more modern, but equally wonderful, Hardwick Hall, the ruins of the old hall are an evocotive, atmospheric place to visit, with an interesting history.

this was the house that Bess of Hrdwick lived in (amongst others) until her new house at hardwick hall was built - it is not furnished but is well worth a visit

This is within the grounds of newer hardwick hall nice to see the architecture and some of the original designs. Hardwick has fantastic lakes and walks.

For me, this is just as impressive as the NT property.

Truly loved by English Heritage its stunning. You fully get to understand how grand this place must have been. Its massive loads to see, the views from the windows are great. The architecture still there is impressive.

NT said if you are an NT member you can go in for free. Not sure if that's true I'm also an English Heritage member so showed that card.

This is a must go to place. Combined with NT its a good half to full day out.

Thank you for the review. Both National Trust and English Heritage members get free admission to the Old Hall.
