Places to visit - Historic Houses - Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire

Hardwick Hall was designed by Robert Smythson and built by Elizabeth Talbot, who was known as Bess of Hardwick, in the 1590s, being completed in 1597. Her initials, E.S are engraved onto the roof, showing her power. Hardwick Hall has many windows, which was a statement of wealth at the time, leading to the phrase ‘Hardwick Hall, more window than wall.’ It is a prime example of Elizabethan architecture and has remained unchanged on the outside.¬†Hardwick Hall was used as the exterior for Malfoy Manor in the shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.¬†
