We’ve just visited the house to see the Christmas decorations. I enjoyed the Dickens theme but would have appreciated it more if there had been some commentary from the people who were posted in each room. Overall a nice visit.

Attended the Christmas fair. Stalls very good some nice gifts. Very busy. Expected great things from the decorated house in a Dickens theme but it did not meet my great expectations.

Another trip to Chatsworth and a great day out. They decked the palace out in a Dickensian Christmas theme and it was very well done. Although very, very busy they tried to make sure everyone had a good look by staggering the queues. Worth it...More
