Attraction Information

Hardwick Park is a traditional style park experience ideal for old school family games, picnicking and wild flower spotting in the gorgeous meadow: take a camera if going in summer, arty kids might want a sketchbook and coloured pencils with them. Depending on the time of year you can experience differing sides to the landscape and be surrounded by differing little creatures and mini beats if you're eagle eyed enough to spot them.

They also have a shiny new visitor centre with excellent facilities including an interactive exhibition space to help keep the kids feeling involved. Alongside that there's also the education room for groups and ranger events, the Tower Cafe and accessible public toilets. A great HQ either to avail yourselves of the basics or to make the most of the information available on the park's history and restoration: which is loads! Ask them what to look for and where and they'll remotely guide you to the season's highlights in the park.
