Make the most of the summer holidays outdoors
Summer holidays are the best excuse to be outdoors, whether it's playing games, out looking for wildlife or enjoying the warmer weather. We've got plenty of things for all the family to while away the days.
Adventures big and small
Outdoor explorers of all ages will have great fun discovering the gardens and parkland. There is so much wildlife that call Hardwick home, from bees enjoying the flowers in the garden to dragonflies at the ponds in the parkland.
Summer of Sport
Over the six weeks of summer holdays we are opening up the North Orchard (next to the Hall - what used to be the old car park) as a space for all sorts of sporting activity that everyone can come and have a go at. Amongst the pickings will be rounders, badminton, tennis and football.
There are lots of spots around Hardwick that make for a great picnic. Have a read of our top ten picks or search out your favourite spot. In the stableyard there's plenty of space to spread out and lots of games for all ages to enjoy.
Take a look at the What's On section for more detail and timings. Standard admission applies.
