Having evolved over more than 450 years, the 105 acre Chatsworth garden continues to change today. The garden is famous for its rich history, historic and modern waterworks and sculptures, the Victorian rock garden and the maze - there is plenty to discover at every turn.
2016 really is the year of the English garden - join us and explore the redesigned Trout stream which provided inspiration for the Best Show Garden at the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, wander the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown landscape to mark his tercentenary and celebrate all things floral at Florabundance.
Chatsworth is undergoing a major project of essential restoration. Please be aware that phase four of the Masterplan will include scaffolding on the east and north façades of the house. 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 water features and coal hole 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.
Revelation is undergoing a project of work and may not be active everyday. 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.
