Chatsworth House & Hardwick Hall

the W
“The palace of the Peaks”

Tour Highlights: Chatsworth House, interior to include state apartments, extensive parklands and estate the glorious Peak District, Hardwick Hall interior and beautiful gardens.

We leave London early and take a traditional English breakfast in the beautiful market town of Bakewell before we make our way onto the magnificent residence of the Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth House. The current property dates from the 17th Century and has the reputation as the grandest country house in England. We tour the lavish interiors at our leisure then view the splendid gardens, set in the most glorious countryside.

Lunch is taken at one of the Peak District’s rustic inns and then we journey onto one of the most well preserved Tudor mansions, Hardwick Hall, home to the fabulously wealthy Bess of Hardwick. The house is an enduring monument to her success and self belief. The interior is sumptuously decorated and the garden equally impressive.

We take a last glimpse of the breathtaking Peak District, before we travel back to London.

As with all our tours, if our most popular tour schedules do not suit your specific requirements, please allow us to create a customised itinerary especially for you. We always remember the day is yours to cherish.

“Oliver, It was a genuine pleasure to meet you today! Profuse thanks to you and Roy for your prompt, courteous, professional assistance throughout our tour in Kent. We had a delightful day and will remain forever in your debt for recommending that we tour Hever Castle. It was utterly mesmerizing and we all agreed that we hope to have the pleasure of returning one day to see even more of the castle itself along with its magnificent grounds. I’d like to reiterate what I told you earlier today: Roy is a wonderful “ambassador” for you, your father and your company. He was prompt, attentive and engaging at each leg of our journey today....a consummate professional who is an invaluable asset to yours or any other company. We’re equally grateful that you selected him to spend the day with us. I appreciated your kind patience as we worked to pin down the details of our trip and will certainly direct our friends in the States to Wilsons for their travel needs in the UK. We hope to see all of you again in the near future!” Read more testimonials
