Renishaw Hall and Gardens
Renishaw Hall and Gardens are a perfect day out for families and individuals. You can spend all day or just a few hours in the gardens but however long, visitors will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this historic green space. With lunch, afternoon teas and other refreshments as well as a shop available in the attractive stable courtyard, it’s a great place to meet friends. The fascinating hall is open to the public for tours on Fridays throughout the season and at weekends in August.
Open from Wednesday to Sunday throughout the season, Renishaw is rightly celebrated for its fabulous Italianate gardens. The formal garden was laid out in 1895 by Sir George Sitwell (1860-1943) in the classical Italianate style. Lady Sitwell and the late Sir Reresby restored much of the garden and enhanced the geometric design. Today, Alexandra continues the family tradition and has made some additions of her own including opening up areas of the top lawn to provide a perfect viewpoint of the majestic Hall.
On either side of the formal gardens are more naturalistic plantings and to the east of the garden, holly and camellia avenues lead to paths through mature woodland, down to the lakes originally excavated to enhance the view from the house.
