Further information

The Christmas market is one of our most popular events; this means that we are constantly working to ensure the best possible experience for our visitors, in what can sometimes be challenging weather and parking conditions. We are committed to improving the visitor experience, and minimising the impact on local residents by:

  • Working with local bus companies to put on extra services during the market, in addition to those already in place, to help reduce the volume of traffic both on the estate and local roads. 
  • A pricing structure for entry in to the market for those travelling by car, aimed at reducing the volume of traffic at peak periods, and encouraging people to car share where possible. For those travelling on public buses, there is no charge for entry to the market.
  • Improved traffic management plan, including additional vehicle entry/exit points, and new parking areas with improved access to areas of ground with better conditions for parking and better drainage if the weather becomes inclement.
  • Additional lighting along the routes to and from the car parking areas across the park.
  • More shuttles to ferry visitors between the carpark and market - two tractor trailer rides, additional buggies, and a mini bus on weekends.
  • Improved walk ways and signed routes from the parking areas to the markets.
  • Extra staff in parking areas to help the traffic flow, parking, and to help our visitors.
  • Providing Christmas market car park map available from early November and onsite during the event. The map will show the entrances to Chatsworth for the market, the different parking areas, shuttle stops and the location of the house and market. 

As always, parking is included with all advance online bookings to visit our Christmas celebration in the house. No additional charges apply for bookings made online in advance. Learn more about Christmas at Chatsworth.
