Been a few years since we last visited Old Hardwick Hall. Still good to wander around. You get a good panoramic view of Hardwick Hall from the top of the Old Hall

1) remember to use the hand held audio device that they give you when entering. It is invaluable to understand the ruins. 2) The views from the “leads” is fantastic and worth the climb up the staircase.

Although a shell it is very interesting to see the structure and views from the top. You can walk around and upstairs and see the old fireplaces and plaster work.

Interesting place with both the old Hardwick Hall (managed by English Heritage) and the newer Hall (managed by National Trust) on the same site. In hindsight I would suggest doing the old hall first as the temptation is to compare and contrast. At £7 for...More

When you've seen one derelict old building, you've seen them all. Not here. You have a lot of access to the building which is very interesting. Well worth a visit.

The first thing to realise is that there are two sites,Hardwick Hall and gardens managed by the NT and Hardwick Old Hall managed by EH, both served by the same car park which costs £4. NT members get free access to both sites, EH members...More

I just didn't get inspired by this place. Much of it was pulled down by choice by the owners of the new hall, and some left as picturesque ruins. We didn't find the volunteers inspiring (contrast with Standby Mill). I wouldn't bother again.

We stayed in the holiday cottage inside the grounds of the Old Hall, so we could wander around the ruins after all the visitors had gone. This place is very atmospheric. It's called the Old Hall, even though it was built at the same time...More
