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 façade. The Masterplan is made possible in part by visitor admission revenue and our Friends of Chatsworth programme through the Chatsworth House Trust.
