    Chatsworth is a place to learn, explore and create in the heart of the Peak District National Park.


    Chatsworth is a place to learn, explore and create in the heart of the Peak District National Park. It comprises a Grade I listed house and stables, a 105-acre garden, a farmyard and adventure playground, and more than 1800 acres of parkland and historic woodland that is free to access and enjoy all year round.

    Chatsworth is cared for by Chatsworth House Trust, a registered charity established in 1981. All income from admissions, Gift Aid, membership, sponsorship and donations goes directly to the charity to be reinvested in the conservation and improvement of Chatsworth for everyone, and in a year-round programme of events, exhibitions, learning and community outreach.

    Chatsworth has been the home of the Devonshire family since the 1550s and has evolved to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of seventeen succeeding generations.


    Chatsworth has long been known as a centre for creativity. Discover art and artefacts that span 4,000 years up to the present day, including paintings, sculpture, textiles, furniture and more. There are more than 25 rooms to explore, including the Painted Hall, Chapel, Sculpture Gallery and State Rooms.

    From November, experience the house and garden transformed for Christmas, with decorations and a light trail inspired by a different theme each year.


    Lose yourself in the 105-acre Chatsworth Garden, with modern and historic waterways, a Victorian rock garden, arboretum, grotto, rose garden, kitchen and cutting garden and much, much more.

    Farmyard and Adventure Playground

    Meet the animals and join craft sessions, animal handling talks and milking parlour demonstrations. From the farmyard, children can take the secret tunnel to the playground for exciting climbing, swinging and water-play adventures.

Try afternoon tea in the Cavendish Restaurant or ice cream sundaes in the Parlour, or salads and stone-baked flatbreads at Chatsworth Kitchen at Peak Village in Rowsley. A range of hotels and inns in Pilsley, Beeley and Baslow on the Chatsworth Estate serve homemade food throughout the day.
