What is more exciting than standing in the footprints of some of histories most evocative and colourful characters or tracing your own family back through the centuries. This summer at Hardwick join us as we rediscover some historical footprints of our own. From discovering the stories behind our portraits to meeting historical characters in costume - even Bess herself might make an appearance.
Head out into the parkland and walk in the footsteps of Lady Spencer or the Stainsby Miller. During half term meet our Rangers in the Stableyard and find out all about their job in conserving the stunning park.
