Oh Dickens! It's Christmas at Chatsworth

Join us this festive season as we celebrate some of Charles Dickens’ best loved works. Discover the splendour and squalor of Dickensian London, with Victorian shop fronts, the London Docks, Scrooge's bed and much, much more all dressed for Christmas. Fagin, Bill Sikes and Miss Havisham will help bring the theme to life delighting all ages.*

Plus you'll have the opportunity to try on dozens of character costumes. Don't forget to share your photos with us - #ChristmasatChatsworth!

I will honour Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year.

Tickets for Christmas are now available to book online. Tickets are also available to purchase on the day at the gate, and are sold on a first come, first served basis. We recommend that where available, tickets are booked online in advance to avoid disappointment.

  • We operate timed ticketing to manage the flow of people in the house.
  • Friends of Chatsworth do not need to book a timed ticket slot.
  • Chatsworth is closed on 24, 25, 26 December 2017 and 1 January 2018.

Christmas market runs from Friday 17 November to Tuesday 5 December. The price of the timed Christmas tickets varies depending on whether you choose to visit:

  • on a weekday during the Christmas market

Please take this into account when selecting a date as tickets cannot be amended.

Looking for somewhere to stay?

We have a collection of hotels, inns, cottages and restaurants on and around the Chatsworth Estate that will make your visit that little bit more comfortable and special. Visit our chatsworthstays.co.uk website to find out more and to book online.

*Fagin, Bill Sikes and Miss Havisham will be on the visitor route throughout the day. However, we cannot guarantee every visitor will encounter them because they are roaming.
