How to book
Time slots go on sale in February and early booking is highly recommended. Please call the booking office on 01246 565 430 to book.
Please note that we are not able to take bookings from any groups wishing to visit on a grounds only basis, as we have no facilities to manage ad hoc drop-offs and collections.
Unfortunately, unbooked coaches will not be permitted to drop off their passengers on the estate. We strongly advise all groups wishing to visit Chatsworth during the Christmas market to book a time slot to visit the house and garden.
We operate timed ticketing in the house at Christmas; this ensures the house does not become too busy. All groups visiting during this period must be pre-booked into an agreed time slot.
Groups visiting at weekends or during the Christmas market are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of £180 to secure their booking.
At Christmas – from the week before the Christmas markets to the week after all coach drop-offs – ticketing and pick-ups are processed at our Rookery Wood coach park. This area is a short walk to the market and house. Transport to the house can be arranged for any passengers with accessibility difficulties.
During Christmas, we are only able to park a set number of coaches. As a result, we can only offer coach parking to groups who have pre-booked to visit the house and garden.
