We booked the day out on-line, which made access to the car park and house so easy. We attended on a day where the weather didn't really help, so we didn't get to experience all the delights of the garden and grounds. However, it was a day well spent. The fashion exhibition was not really my 'thing', but looking around... More

We should have taken note of some of the other recent reviews warning us not to visit until the "Fashion Collection" was removed in October. I appreciated from comments that the costumes, incidentally behind glass, might block some of the features of the rooms, but I definitely did NOT anticipate walking around in almost total darkness ! The exhibits were... More

We took our twin grandchildren with us and what a fantastic day we all had. Booked online so save time we all loved it and we're certainly tired out by the time we got home. Everything so well kept and well organised, will definitely be coming back pick a decent day weather wise and there is more than enough to... More

A lovely day out (although not really my cup of tea, my partner loves it and regularly visits). Chatsworth House really is a magnificent mansion set in beautiful grounds with a number of things to see. A wonderful place for some photography. If big houses are your thing, then this is a wonderful example.

Visited Chatsworth House while the Fashion exhibition was on. The house, its interiors and exhibits are very interesting, the exhibition just added to the experience. However, the garden.........that is well worth a visit! If you can, try and get a guided tour, either walking or in the buggy. There is lots to see and it also has some very interesting... More

I visited this house on a very changeable day weather wise and did not get the chance to see all of the gardens thanks to the hail (in April). The house is quite stunning, with painted ceilings, beautiful artwork and an array of interesting artefacts. The staff are very helpful & have lovely little asides to tell. Ask about the... More

Came here for my 22nd Birthday. One of the many times I have been here and I was not disappointed. This time we went with the intention of seeing the 'Fashion through the centuries' display which was absolutely fantastic. If you buy your tickets online you get free parking which is always helpful. Tickets are slightly pricy but you get... More

The House Party exhibition is a must for anyone interested in costume or history. There is much to see and you need to give yourself plenty of time to absorb all the information & to view the artefacts on many timelines. It's thoughtfully laid out with pleasant engaging staff happy to explain at any moment. I would say to anyone... More
