Treasures of Hardwick Exhibition

Bess of Hardwick had exquisite taste and our curators agree. Five of the designated Treasures of the National Trust are here at Hardwick. Come and discover which ones they are in a new ground floor display through the autumn.

Why 125?

For over 125 years the National Trust has looked after buildings, landscapes and collections for everyone to enjoy. In celebration of this milestone and to mark the publication of a new book 125 Treasures from the Collections in the National Trust, we will be showcasing five of Hardwick’s own treasures in a new display this autumn. 

What objects are they?

See if you agree! Explore the stories behind some of the remarkable objects in our care which highlight Bess’ impeccable taste and the quality of the craftmanship with which she surrounded herself. We can share there is a piece of furniture, two portraits, ceramic and a embroidery. 

The book will be available to purchase in our onsite shop in the Stable Yard. 

When and where can I see them? 

All through the Autumn. The Hall is open 7 days a week, 11.00am - 3.30pm. Situated on the ground floor. Please note: one item is a replica and can be seen in situ on the top floor
