Lots to explore in every room


About the house

Chatsworth House is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.

Today, Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash. 

There are over 30 rooms to explore*, from the magnificent Painted Hall, regal State Rooms, restored Sketch Galleries and beautiful Sculpture Gallery. In the guest bedrooms, meet an Edwardian lady's maid who will reveal the secrets of her mistress's suitcase of clothes. 

Chatsworth is undergoing a major project of essential restoration. 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.

*Select rooms on the upper floor of the house will be closed for annual conservation during the Christmas season.
