First off, the hall is only open for about 30 days a year, so check on their website before you go. Tours run every half an hour on the open days with local guides - the tour took about 45 minutes. And there are some small gardens which will take less than half an hour to wander round. I've been... More

Ok - with guided tours so much depends on the ability of the guide - and in the past have several experiences spoilt by overbearing guides. Today was the opposite with a lovely gentle guide with a lively sense of humour. So thank you Polly. The result was a warm and engaging tour that was highly inter- reactive, and drew... More

We noticed that the hall was open to the public over the bank holiday and decided we should visit whilst in the area. We were on the first tour guided round the house by Polly who was very knowledgeable about the house and the family. It's a lovely old house with well kept grounds and I would encourage anyone who...

Came to Tissington for a walk and found out the hall had decorated rooms for Christmas. We decided to go and didn't regret it one bit! Absolutely stunning house, beautifully thought out and well decorated rooms that had different themes. My personal favourite was walking through the cupboard into Narnia! Lovely atmosphere, not too busy and just the right price!... More

Four of us visited this Christmas event on Saturday November. We are all grown - ups but were delighted and charmed by the beautiful room sets and decorations on the theme of fairy tales. It truly was enchanting. We especially loved stepping through the Narnia wardrobe into the realm of the Snow Queen! I defy anyone to not be enchanted... More

A prebooked group of 17 came back this year to sample the fabulous Christmas themed rooms, each a work of art. This is an intimate unhurried experience with a warm welcome and burning log fire on entrance. The set designer has achieved a delightful display with Cinderella, The Nutcracker and Narnia some of the rooms. Wear warm clothes as only... More

Tissington Hall is the centre piece of this beautiful village dating back to the early 1600's near Ashbourne in the Peak District. The Hall is a wedding venue which from the outside looks magnificent. Don't miss the rest of the village with its plant nursery, candle manufacturer, pond and tea rooms. Most of it is open Thurs-Sunday but other areas... More

This Grade II 17th Century mansion has been in the Fitzherbert family for the past 400 years. The current incumbent is Sir Richard who runs the Hall, and occasionally can be found lending a hand in the Tearooms. It is possible to see the inside of Tissington Hall, but check opening times before you visit to avoid disappointment. Christmastime is... More

Beautiful area. Make sure you visit before 5 and check out whether the hall will actually be open (on the day we went, it was sadly being hired out for an event). Tea places and shops nearby close at around 5. Nice garden centre near by. Places nearby to go on trails etc
