There are so many opportunities to create long lasting memories at Chatsworth this summer; from discovering 500 years of history in the house and new ways to play in our garden, woodland and playground to learning a new skill on a creative or nature themed workshop. 

Learn more about our summer programme below.


Visiting with children

Children's tickets are available at a flat rate of £10 (£8 at off-peak times) whether you're visiting the house and garden, the garden, the farmyard and playground, or all three. Visit our book tickets page for more information.

Children's Workshops

Chatsworth offers a varied range of children's events and family fun days out designed to inspire and educate, as well as create long-lasting memories. 

Outdoor events

Enjoy spending time outdoors with one of these memory making events.

In the house

View art and artefacts that span 4000 years, uncover the history of the family that has lived here for almost 500 years, and explore our latest exhibitions, Picturing Childhood and Erdem: Imaginary Conversations. 

In the garden

Discover a garden where history and natural beauty meet.

At the Farmyard and Adventure Playground

At our farmyard, discover our rare breed animals and enjoy a cuddle with our squeaky guinea pigs before taking the secret tunnel to the playground for exciting woodland adventures. 

Our shops and restaurants

From pasties and fresh sandwiches to sit down meals, our cafes, restaurants and food to go outlets cater for all occasions. 

Free activities for families

Our parkland and woodland are both free to access all year round and are the perfect venue for a family picnic or bug hunt. 

Parking charges apply if you come by car, but why not consider travelling on the open top Peak Sightseer (daily until 6 October), a 'hop on, hop off' service stopping at Chatsworth every 30 minutes. Learn more.

Stay with us

With so much to see, do, and explore in the Peak District, it's a shame to only come for the day, so why not stay a little longer?

Our country cottages, shepherd's huts, hotels, and inns are the perfect base for exploring all that Chatsworth, Derbyshire, and the Peak District have to offer.
