About the garden

The 105 acre garden is the product of nearly 500 years of careful cultivation. Although some points of interest have been replaced to make way for new fashions, the garden retains many early features, including the Canal Pond, Cascade and 1st Duke's Greenhouse.

In 2020 we celebrate the continued reinvigoration of the grounds with the installation of a new monumental sculpture, Natural Course created by Laura Ellen Bacon, as the centrepiece of Arcadia.

The Arcadia project is part of the biggest transformation of the garden for 200 years - it also includes a remodelled Rock Garden, the Maze borders, the Ravine, and Dan Pearson’s redevelopment of the Trout Stream and the Jack Pond.

The water features play during the open season from 10.30pm until 4.15pm. Please be aware that the water features are gravity fed and reliant on the water levels in the lakes above Chatsworth. The active times may change due to rainfall.

Please be aware that the Cascade was not originally constructed for walking in and the stones can become slippery. Please keep children supervised, especially at the Cascade and near lakes and ponds.
