Tissington Hall & Village


The Tissington Estate has been in our family for over 500 years and we are delighted to be the present custodians of a very special place. The Hall, today a prestigious Derbyshire wedding venue, was built in 1609 by our ancestor Frances and has been lived in by the family ever since. Only 300 other families in the country can witness that longevity.Sir Richard inherited the Hall and the Estate from his Uncle, the late Sir John FitzHerbert at the age of 24 in 1989. It was a challenge that he was to embrace with enthusiasm and relish as he soon realised that the Estate needed to change its direction. Located at the southern edge of the Peak District National Park, the Estate extends to just under 2000 acres, centred on Tissington Hall.The origins of Well Dressing are lost in antiquity. They may even have their roots in pagan customs later given a Christian meaning. One theory says that the custom began just after the Black Death of 1348-9.

Group tours are available to organised societies and groups throughout the year. In addition to the published 28 days, these tours are taken by local professional guides who outline the history and politics of the house over the last 500 years.

Times can be arranged by mutual agreement and can be organised from 10am to 7.30pm in the evening. The minimum requirement is for 15 people but larger numbers are most welcome.


Tissington Hall & Gardens sits in a very unique position mainly because it’s set perfectly within its own picturesque postcard village. This 17th-century Jacobean mansion is a grade ll listed building and it’s history is emmense. The FitzHerberts have held this seat for over 650 years and although many Fitzherberts through the decades, have made their own changes here and there, it is the present heir Sir Richard FitzHerbert that has turned it into the tourist attraction it presents itself as today and if you are lucky enough, it will be the baronet guiding you around the house in the day of your tour. This leads me onto the tours themselves. It is thoroughly advisable that you book ahead if your looking to have a tour around the house. Although the gardens not so much so, along with the Tearooms, they are a lot more flexible when it comes to opening times. All in all, a trip to Tissington Hall, gardens and village is a huge must and they’re new Tearooms are just simply amazing!
