History Built in 1609, Tissington Hall was originally a fortification that guarded the Norman Church of St Marys, and thus parts of the estate dates back to the 11th century and parts of the building were built in the 18th and 19th century. Throughout the centuries, Tissington Hall has become a bricolage of various eclectic histories, stories and architecture. The venue's impressive statement exterior has meant that it was chosen as a filming location for BBC's adaption of Jane Eyre. Therefore, this is the perfect location for period drama fanatics and bookworms alike. A particular rarity of Tissington Hall is that it is still inhabited as a family home, and has been hosting weddings since 2003. The family offer a personable approach to weddings as well as offering an in-house wedding coordinator to manage each intricacy of the day perfectly. This has culminated in Tissington Hall becoming one of Derbyshire's most sought after wedding venues.
