The Chatsworth House Trust
The house, many of its contents and 737 hectares (1,822 acres) of the surrounding landscape are leased to a registered charity, the Chatsworth House Trust, established in 1981. The 12th Duke and Duchess pay rent to the charity to live at Chatsworth and work with the charity and others to welcome Chatsworth’s visitors.
Every penny of visitor admission goes directly to the Chatsworth House Trust, which is dedicated to the long-term preservation of Chatsworth House, the collections, garden, woodlands and park for the long-term benefit of the public.
The Chatsworth House Trust annual review highlights the activities undertaken by the team to meet the charitable objectives of the trust. It also serves to illustrate the diverse and exceptional work the organisation undertakes and celebrates successes from the year.
As a charity, Chatsworth is deeply grateful for your support as all money raised goes towards restoration, conservation and maintenance.
