Art, library and archive collections

At Chatsworth we care for one of the largest and most significant private collections in Britain. Through the following pages you can explore a selection of some of the most significant objects in the collection.

We also have an active programme of loans from the collection to external exhibitions. Find out which objects from the Devonshire Collection are currently on loan.

If you have any questions about the collection, or if you would like to arrange access to the archives or to view an item that is not normally on display in the house and galleries, please contact us.
