Hardwick Hall , in Derbyshire, is an architecturally significant Elizabethan country house in England. Built between 1590–1597 for the formidable Bess of Hardwick, it was designed by the architect Robert Smythson, an exponent of the Renaissance style of architecture. Hardwick Hall is one of the earliest examples of the English interpretation of the style, which came into fashion having slowly spread from Florence. Its arrival in Britain fortuitously coincided with the period when it was no longer necessary or legal to fortify a domestic dwelling. Ownership of the house was transferred to the National Trust in 1959. Today, it is fully open to the public.

HARDWICK HALL, Derbyshire, England. Built for Bess of Hardwick, it is one of the most important Elizabethan homes in England. Famous for it's tapestries and textiles.
