Built between 1591 and 1597 by 'Bess of Hardwick', Hardwick Hall is one of the finest examples of the Elizabethan architecture. The house has been almost untouched since Bess lived in it and has some of the finest tapestries, furniture, embroidery and portraits of the time. Including portraits of Mary Queen of Scots and the Elizabeth I. Hardwick Hall also has extensive gardens most dating back to the 1870’s. Bess died in 1608 and Hardwick Hall passed to William Cavendish, the house remained the property of the Cavendish family until 1959 when the National Trust accepted it as payment of death duties.
