Chatsworth is the home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family and with strong links to Buxton Spa town.

Not sure what to do when visiting ? There is lots to see and do. Chatsworth Farm is fun and educational, suited for children of all ages. Take a walk around Chatsworth Park which covers 1,000 acres of designed landscape. The Park itself holds a key position in the history of English landscape design, influenced by some of the greatest designers of their time.

Explore the House, Gardens, farm and Park 

Visit Chatsworth House and Gardens. The House has over 30 rooms to explore with artwork and collectibles collected by the Cavendish family over the years, with each generation adding to the collection. Christmas is a great time of year to visit, with the Christmas decorations spread throughout the House. The Gardens are a product of nearly 500 years of cultivation with stunning water features.

Chatsworth is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality.

Home of the Cavendish family since the 1550s, it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations. Today Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucien Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.

After years of painstaking work and restoration, funded by the Chatsworth House Trust, we open a new visitor route through the house, including a completely new gallery for displaying art and treasures from the collection, important rooms newly restored, elegant new displays celebrating the legendary Duchess Georgiana, and an exhibition celebrating the 90th birthday of Deborah Devonshire, the present Dowager Duchess.

Other innovations this year include access to the restored stone courtyard at the heart of the house, completely new guidebooks and audio tours, far fewer stairs for all visitors and a new lift giving full disabled access to all three floors of the house for the first time.

Highlights of the new displays will include our most spectacular ever array of family portraits spanning 450 years, on the walls of the restored Oak staircase, and the life and tastes of Duchess Georgiana reflected in new permanent displays of portraits, furniture and works of art she commissioned or acquired, many not seen by visitors before.
