Chatsworth is a thriving visitor attraction, a nationally significant historic landscape, and a working estate. It is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. It comprises a Grade I listed house and stables, a 105-acre garden, a 1,822-acre park and one of Europe’s most significant art collections – the Devonshire Collections.
The Chatsworth House Trust was established in 1981 and endowed by the Devonshire family. A registered charity, its principal purpose is the long term preservation of the house, its art collection, garden, woodlands and park for the benefit of the public.

We rely on income from visitors and supporters to undertake an ever expanding programme of essential conservation and maintenance at Chatsworth. Each year, the work required is always far in excess of what the charity can support. The enforced closures and restrictions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic have had an enormous financial impact on the charity, as we have welcomed fewer than half the number of visitors we would usually expect.
If you are able to, please donate today and help us to protect Chatsworth for future generations.
