Overview

Hardwick Park is a country park with a difference. Now a Visit England accredited attraction, it has survived since the 1750s when its then owner, John Burdon, created a sprawling ornamental park. Today, the remains of some of the original buildings he created can be seen throughout the park, which suggest the area has a richer story to tell. Hardwick Park is a great place to spend the day. Stroll through the park and admire the natural beauty of the lake, woodland and wildlife. The visitor centre also has excellent facilities including an interactive display, education room, cafe and toilets.Throughout the year there are a variety of events, activities, walks and workshops for all to enjoy.

Since I can remember we've always ventured here as kids and adults. Now with a family of my own and since the parks revamp it is even better for families to visit. It now seems more organised and a little less naturally sculpted as it...More

lovely walks around the lake with views of the follies. Picnic place and plenty of places to sit. There is a cafe near the carpark. You have to pay for parking but that's all. What a wonderful facility.

There are enclosed dog exercise areas where you are able to let the dogs off for a good run round. These are no too big but my dog loves running round the trees that are there.
