Christmas at Chatsworth

5 November 2016 - 3 January 2017

Closed 24 - 26 December 2016 and 1 January 2017

Christmas is everyone's favourite time of the year, especially at Chatsworth.

That's why every year the house is transformed as we decorate the lower floors of the house to get everyone in the festive spirit. Each year we choose a different theme so please keep your eyes and ears open for the announcement of this year's theme.

Keep an eye on the calendar below as we publish events and activities for the whole family over the winter period. From truly magical nativity performances in the farmyard starring our own farm animals, to gourmet evenings, floral workshops and wreath making demonstrations, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Or if you prefer to get your Christmas shopping off to an early start, you can browse our range of gift shops, visit our Christmas market with over 100 stalls of gifts for the whole family, and why not stop for a mulled wine and mince pie.

Select rooms on the upper floor of the house will be closed for annual conservation during the Christmas season.


Take a look at a few of our past themes below.
