Prehistoric plant trail

Follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs with our prehistoric plant-hunting trail. Covering both the garden and Stand Wood, the trail invites you to use all your senses to track down plants and trees that have existed for millions of years. The trail is free to download (use the link below) or pick up a printed copy when you visit.


Stand Wood is free for you to explore. Tickets that include the garden must be booked if you would like to follow the garden part of the trail.

Discoveries in the house

See how nature's designs have inspired artists and designers past and present by taking a look in our handling boxes along the house route.

You'll be able to feel some of the materials that artists have used to create pieces for this year's exhibition, Mirror Mirror: Reflections on Design at Chatsworth, as well as precious minerals and fossils that have inspired designs in the house. Speak to our house guides during your visit to learn more.
