Enjoy a great day out this Christmas in Derbyshire. Explore the wider estate as the Hall is now CLOSED for important conservation work on the historic collection. The Gardens have been decorated with natural willow and evergreen foliage, the Stables shop has gifts for all the family and indulge in a festive treat in the Great Barn Restaurant (open every day except Christmas Day).

The Hall is now closed for important conservation work on the historic and internationally renowned collection. Enjoy the wider estate including the park, gardens, restaurant and shop.

The festive smell trail

Follow your noses with our smell trail. See if you can sniff out what scents we have along our trail and what Christmas memories they may remind you of. Enjoy the trail everyday.

Evergreen Christmas

The gardens have been decorated with natural willow creations and evergreen foliage from the Hardwick estate. On the terrace of the restaurant our sleigh pulled by willow reindeer is the perfect opportunity to hop in for a festive photo.
