Snow update 27 November

Chatsworth House, Garden and Farmyard are all open today, however the Storytime Father with Christmas experience in the farmyard is cancelled as he’s stuck in a snowdrift and his elves can’t dig him out. We will automatically process refunds for those who had tickets for this event. You do not to contact us.

If you have tickets booked to visit the house, garden or farmyard, but are unable to get to Chatsworth, please email us at with your booking confirmation details, and we will process a refund. There is no need to call us.

Christmas at Chatsworth

This year, we celebrate 20 magical years of Christmas at Chatsworth. Our displays are inspired by the past two decades of spellbinding decorations throughout the house and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Entrancing scenes will combine nostalgic references to Christmases of years past with the traditions at the heart of Chatsworth’s seasonal celebrations. The Chapel will come alive with festive music; a kaleidoscope of colour will mingle playfully with gems and minerals from our collection; inventive use of recycled materials will illustrate the potential of sustainable decorating; and no winter celebration would be complete without a sprinkling of the white stuff...

Join us as we celebrate the magic of Christmas at Chatsworth.
