School children learning in Hardwick Hall

Tudor history at the Hall

Join us for an immersive half-day session that will give children a real insight into life during Tudor times as guests of Bess of Hardwick.

An engaging experience, students will be able to wander through Bess' private rooms, handle Tudor objects and dress in Tudor costume.

 

Stone centre and masons' yard

There have been stone masons at Hardwick since Bess’ time.

Get an insight into the lives of craftspeople during Tudor times, how they would have quarried the stone and been able to make Hardwick look so impressive.

Tudor dance workshop

Learning at Stainsby Mill

Take a look at how the cogs and wheels work

A working water mill, Stainsby is at the entrance to Hardwick. Students can hand-mill the grain and learn about the mechanisms involved in a working mill.
