Garden sculpture, inspired by our exhibition Mirror Mirror: Reflections on Design at Chatsworth
Explore the contemporary and historic sculptures on display in the garden, while learning more about this year's exhibition, Mirror Mirror: Reflections on Design at Chatsworth. Exhibition Curator Alex Hodby will be leading the tour, and our art tutor will be there to guide you as you sketch.

Rock Garden and Arcadia
The garden team will guide you around the Rock Garden and the newly developed area of the garden known as Arcadia, while our art tutor will teach you techniques for drawing the varied landscapes and rock formations you'll find in these areas.


Some areas of the garden include steps and steep slopes. If you would like to join this event and have questions about accessibility, please contact Chatsworth Education at Education@chatsworth.org so we can discuss your specific requirements.

Make a stay of it

With so much to see, do, and explore in the Peak District, it's a shame to only come for the day, so why not stay a little longer? Our country cottages, shepherd's huts, hotels, and inns are the perfect base for exploring all that Chatsworth, Derbyshire, and the Peak District has to offer. Find out more.
