Hardwick Park, Sedgefield

Hardwick Park is a country park with a difference, a Visit England accredited attraction, and a great place to visit at any time of the year.

With free admission (other than car parking charges), you can stroll through the historic parkland admiring the natural beauty of the lake, woodland and wildlife. No visit is complete without calling into the visitor centre to learn about the history and restoration of the park, taking a look in the gift shop and calling in to the Tower Cafe.
