Tissington Hall is opening its doors to the public this month when visitors will get the opportunity to see family portraits dating back to the 16th century and explore ten acres of manicured gardens.
Tours of the hall are available from Monday to Thursday throughout August, apart from August 13. Tickets are £10 per person for hall and garden, under 10s free.
Built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert, Tissington Hall has been in the same family ever since. The FitzHerberts are one of only 300 families in the country that can boast such longevity.
Sir Richard FitzHerbert, who lives at Tissington Hall with his wife Fiona and their family, said: ““I look forward to welcoming visitors to the Hall this summer to see how our family has let the house evolve over the years. The Hall, gardens and setting within this special village offer a wonderful way to spend summer, here at Tissington.”
The FitzHerberts are very much involved in village life which has many attractions including the ancient Tissington church with its Norman origins, the award-winning Herbert’s Fine English Tearooms, a vintage sweet shop, an internationally-renowned candle maker, a traditional butcher and a plant and flower centre.
Tours of Tissington Hall offer a perfect excuse to come and spend a full day in the village; enjoying the walks, businesses, sights and sounds of this beautiful and ancient Peak District village.
