The Chatsworth Friends membership scheme is run by the Chatsworth House Trust, a registered charity dedicated to looking after the house, collections, garden, parkland and woodlands for the enjoyment of everyone.

For an annual fee, priced from £137, Friends can enjoy unlimited visits to Chatsworth throughout the year, as well as many other benefits including discounts in our shops, exclusive ‘Friends’ events, complimentary tickets to Chatsworth International Horse Trials, Chatsworth Country Fair and Chatsworth at Christmas, and early access to our annual exhibition.
