About Chatsworth

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 full programme of events, exhibitions, learning and community outreach.

Chatsworth hosts a year-round programme of events, including talks, tours and workshops for adults and children focusing on art and creativity, heritage, horticulture and the landscape, agriculture, and rural crafts. There is also an annual country fair, family festival, and garden and plant fair, and from November to January the house and garden are decorated for Christmas.
