About the garden
2017 really is the year of the English garden; join us and explore the redesigned Trout Stream which provided inspiration for the Best Show Garden at the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, wander the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown landscape, and celebrate all things floral at Florabundance.
Chatsworth is undergoing a major project of essential restoration, the Masterplan. Please be aware that phase four of the Masterplan will include scaffolding on the east and north façades of the house.
The Masterplan is made possible in part by visitor admission revenue and our Friends of Chatsworth programme through the Chatsworth House Trust.
