Details

Chatsworth, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire is set in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire, on the banks of the river Derwent.

The historic house has over 30 rooms to explore, including the magnificent Painted Hall and Sculpture Gallery, as well as one of Europe's most significant art collections, the Devonshire Collection.

In the garden, discover water features, giant sculptures and beautiful flowers set in one of Britain's most well-known historic landscapes.

In our working farmyard you can interact with real farm animals and enjoy adventurous fun in the playground. Furthermore, with holiday cottages and hotels, shops and restaurants, including Britain's best farm shop, you can really make the most of your time at Chatsworth.
2014 is set to be a remarkable year at Chatsworth and continues to offer so much to see and do for the whole family. Chatsworth hosts many exciting events and exhibitions throughout the year, including the annual horse trials, Food and Drink fair, summer flower festival, Country Fair and famous Christmas market.

In addition to the busy events programme, there are also a number of special exhibitions included with admission. From March until 29 June the works of Michael Craig-Martin will be displayed in the Chatsworth Garden, and 'Chatsworth in Wartime', an exhibition marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War will run from 4 April until 23 December. In the autumn the Sotheby's Beyond Limits sculpture exhibition returns to the garden, as well as our rolling programme showcasing Old Master Drawings which continues throughout the year.
