Renishaw Hall and Gardens provides an excellent day out for groups. With hall, garden and vineyard tours on offer, there is plenty to see and do. Group tours are available throughout the year, with several options for group bookings.

Renishaw Hall has recently been awarded Garden of the Year 2015 by the Historic Houses Association.

Guided hall tours take visitors through the whole of the ground floor of historic Renishaw Hall, looking at the ten principle rooms. The hall is almost 400 years old and displays an intriguing mix of historic collections and modern day touches of this still loved - and lived in - family home.

The minimum number for a group tour is 20 people. Hall tours take approximately one hour (limited seating during the tour).

Specialist hall tours
We also offer the following specialist tours:

Literary hall tour - £18 per person. Renishaw Hall is a house built on books, with a wide range of literary interests and connections over a period of almost 400 years. Each Sitwell generation has made its unique contribution to the literary legacy of the house and the family, some achieving considerable public acclaim. Learn about the literary aspirations and careers of the Sitwells, especially the 1920s -1960s famous 'literary trio' - Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell Sitwell

A Decorative Arts at Renishaw Hall tour is also available at £15 per person, focusing on the family's incredible collection of paintings, furniture and other antique objects.

If your group has a special area of interest we can tailor a tour especially for you.

Guided garden tours show groups the stunning Italianate gardens of Renishaw Hall, complete with statues, water features and beautiful planting schemes. The garden was designed by Sir George Sitwell 4th Bt over 115 years ago and his vision is still strong today. Tours are with Head Gardener, David Kesteven or other garden experts and last approximately one hour (limited seating during the tour).

Guided vineyard tours take place in the historic vineyard on site, which is over 40 years old making it one of the oldest vineyards in England and it was once the most northerly vineyard in the world. Today, the vineyard is looked after by wine maker Kieron Atkinson and produces award-winning wines which visitors can try on a tour and tasting session. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours including the wine tasting.
