Chatsworth comprises a Grade I listed house and stables, a 105-acre garden, a Lancelot 'Capability' Brown landscaped park (1,822 acres) and one of Europe's most significant art collections - the Devonshire Collection.

The Chatsworth House Trust was set up in 1981 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.

All income from visitor admission, Friends of Chatsworth memberships, events, sponsorship grants and donations go directly to the charity to pay its operating costs, and also go to the essential conservation and restoration of the house, garden and park to ensure their preservation for future generations.

In 2019 American supporters of the Chatsworth House Trust created Chatsworth in America to help engage new audiences with the stories of Chatsworth.

The Masterplan

In 2018 and with great excitement, Chatsworth was finally released from its shroud of scaffolding to reveal the results of the most ambitious restoration programme in nearly 200 years, the Masterplan.

This ten-year project had a final cost of £32.7 million and included a wide-ranging and in-depth programme of work to ensure that the fabric of the house and its essential services are up to date and fit for purpose.

This work and other essential projects can only happen thanks to the continuing support of our corporate partnerships, visitors and Friends of Chatsworth.
