About the house
Chatsworth House is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.
Today, Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.
There are over 30 rooms to explore*, from the magnificent Painted Hall, regal State Rooms, restored Sketch Galleries and beautiful Sculpture Gallery.
*Select rooms on the upper floor of the house will be closed for annual conservation during Christmas at Chatsworth, 9 November 2019 to 5 January 2020. We will reopen for the 2020 season on 21 March.
Please note that we do not allow prams, pushchairs or rucksack style baby carriers in the house. We do offer a limited supply of alternative baby-carrying equipment. Please ask staff on arrival at the house.
Please also note that we only allow small bags in the house. Storage is available in the left luggage room near the house entrance.
