Having evolved over more than 450 years, the 105 acre Chatsworth garden continues to change today. There is plenty to discover at every turn, including permanent sculptures to be found. The garden is famous for its rich history, historic and modern waterworks and sculptures, the Victorian rock garden and the maze.
Chatsworth is undergoing a major project of essential restoration. Please be aware that phase four of the Masterplan will include scaffolding on the east façade. The Masterplan is made possible in part by visitor admission revenue and our Friends of Chatsworth programme through the Chatsworth House Trust.
Please be aware that the following are not permitted in the garden: gazebos, tents, barbeques, bicycles and scooters.
Coal hole and water features
The Coal hole is currently closed for essential works. The water features are active every day from 11am until 5pm. Please note that the water features are gravity fed and reliant on the water levels in the lakes above Chatsworth. The active times may change due to rainfall.
Sea Horse Fountain and Revelation
The Sea Horse Fountain is undergoing a large restoration project this summer. At present works are ongoing and the Sea Horse Fountain will not play. Revelation will also not play due to works on the water feature. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.
The garden is accessible for our visitors who use manual wheelchairs and electric scooters. Find out more information about accessibility at Chatsworth.
