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.

Improving the fabric of the garden is fundamental to maintaining its heritage. In 2018 we celebrate the continued reinvigoration of the grounds with the completion of planting at the Trout Stream, widespread hedge renovation, ongoing path upgrading, as well as redeveloping the Rock Garden south of Strid Pond.

The water features play during the open season from 11am until 5pm. 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.
