Special educational needs and disabilities
Chatsworth is committed to making its education visits as inclusive and accessible as possible. If your group has any special educational needs, dietary or medical requirements, physical disabilities, sensory impairments, or social, emotional or mental health difficulties, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss with you how best to adapt sessions to meet the needs of your group.
The house is often quieter in the afternoon. Alternatively, house tours can be booked from 10am, allowing you to see Chatsworth before it opens to the public. There is full access to the entire visitor route in the house for visitors with a physical disability and good access to the garden and farmyard. More information about access for visitors with physical disabilities or sensory impairments can be found on the accessibility pages of our website.
Devonshire Educational Trust
The Devonshire Educational Trust (DET) is an independent charity that works in partnership with the Chatsworth House Trust to provide educational opportunities across the Devonshire Group.
The charity was established in 2004 to enhance the educational experiences of children and young people visiting the Chatsworth Estate. We now provide educational opportunities across the Devonshire Group and offer diverse and accessible educational opportunities; from learning about matters of historical, artistic and architectural interest, to learning about the countryside and rural landscape.
Through guided, self-guided and specialist education packages, the Devonshire Educational Trust provides quality education that reaches and inspires all backgrounds and abilities.
