...home of the Fitzherbert family for 400 years
Tucked away in the Peak District’s wild rolling hills lies the Tissington Estate.

Tissington Hall is a unique and impressive venue for corporate events, team building exercises and management training days.
The history of Tissington can be traced back as far as 1086, when it is mentioned as Tizinctun in the Domesday Book, among the possessions of Henry de Ferrers.
In the reign of Elizabeth I, Francis FitzHerbert, who was the great grandson of Nicholas, purchased it and so the Manor of Tissington became re-united.
Since that time, the history of the village has been inextricably woven with that of the FitzHerbert family, who still occupy the Hall and govern an estate extending from Bradbourne Mill in the east, to the river Dove in the West.
The Hall and Gardens are open for pre-booked group tours throughout the year.
