House of discovery
There are over 30 rooms to explore at Chatsworth House (with many others privately used by the family). Each is packed full of beautiful decorations and unique art collections: everything from modern sculptures to ancient artefacts.
You’ll find history around every corner. Many famous people have stayed in the house including Mary Queen of Scots, who was both a guest and a prisoner, and the King of Portugal. There are stories of intrigue, infidelity and political machinations wherever you roam.
Garden of delights
You could spend a day discovering Chatsworth without even going through the front door. There are 105 acres of gardens to walk around where you can enjoy cottages, bridges, farms, fountains, footpaths and sensory gardens. Whether it’s a gentle walk or a vigorous stroll, there’s something for everyone.
Capability Brown, the most renowned landscape gardener in history, played his part in shaping the way the scenery looks. However, the owners do not rest on their laurels and the gardens are constantly refreshed to provide contemporary as well as classical looks. For lovers of nature, it’s a shrine to good taste and memorable views.
