    Visited as a NT member which grants you free access but not the audio tour that's open to EH members. Fortunately a friend was an EH member so I used their tour, there's so much information about the ...  more »

    Quite a contrast to the new hall but you can imagine it would've been a grand building in its day. I think people would've been bowled over by it. The remaining plasterwork was stunning. it helps you ...  more »

    This is a great ruin and it's fantastic to spend time climbing to the top, from where you get some excellent views. The plasterwork is impressive and underscores the greatness of this one proud buildi...  more »

  • An absolute delight if you are interested in history & enjoy strolling around historical buildings & gardens. Acres of park land to walk around, food & drink is also available, also there are facilities for the disabled visitors. The entrance fee to the new hall or old hall isn't cheap. Membership of EH gets you free entry into the old hall & members of NT have free entry into the new hall, both worth a visit. Parking is free if you're a member of English Heritage or National Trust otherwise there is a fee.
  • Although the old hall looks like a ruin the central staircase is intact. Spectacular view from the top and a great outlook over the hall on your way up.
  • Well worth going to see. Amazing ruin to explore. Shame the original owners decided to let it fall into to such a state. But does mean we have a good ruin to explore! Fun for the kids. Also even tho it's English heritage, national trust members get in free.
  • Fantastic views and good walks. If you're into the history it's interesting to understand the story behind the Old Hall, Bess and the construction of Hardwick. The Old Hall can be a pleasant stop for an hour
  • Very interesting hall. Fascinating. Can get in here with NT card
