A ducal palace set in rolling parkland, Chatsworth is magnificent both inside and out, and houses a major private collection.

A 17th-century creation with a 19th-century wing built by the 6th Duke, Chatsworth is the ancestral seat of the Cavendish family, the Dukes of Devonshire. It is an outstanding English stately home, with a sumptuous range of state rooms featuring ceilings by Laguerre and Verrio; extensive gallery spaces for the collection; a chapel adorned with sculpture by Verrio; three libraries, housing one of the finest English book collections in private hands; and a Wyatville dining room hung with works by Van Dyck, Mytens and Gainsborough.

Please note, 50% off entry offer only valid during the main season, 24 March – 24 May 2018 and 3 September – 9 November 2018. 

The art collection has been shaped by 14 generations of the Cavendish family and is remarkable for its Old Masters, jewellery and metalwork, photographs, sculpture and textiles. The 12th Duke and his family continue to add to the collection, including contemporary works.
