Join Marie, an expert seamstress from the Textiles team, for an insight into how the Devonshires and their servants were 'dressed to impress'. Begin the morning with a tour of the house to focus on how costume is depicted in a selection of famous portraits that adorn the walls of Chatsworth. Then discover some of the fascinating stories behind Chatsworth’s costume collection, with details from the Devonshire archives. End the morning with a tour of our textile conservation rooms for a close-up look into selected items from our historic textiles collection.*

The day includes refreshments and the afternoon free for you to explore the house and garden at your leisure. 

Entry to the house and garden is included with your ticket. 

*Please be aware that the route to the textile archives and conservation rooms includes stairs and has no lift access.
