About the park
The Chatsworth landscape has been influenced by some of the greatest artists and designers of their time, including George London, William Kent, Lancelot Brown, Sir Jeffry Wyatville and Sir Joseph Paxton.
Today the park contains historic and modern architecture and art including James Paine's bridges and mill, Queen Mary's Bower and horse jumps from the Chatsworth International Horse Trials. It is also home to red and fallow deer, sheep, cattle and many wild animals.
Stand Wood provides an impressive backdrop for the house, and contains an interesting diversity of trees and wildlife. There are many paths through Stand Wood and the park for you to discover and explore.
Wheelchair access is limited due to the terrain of the park. Find out more about accessibility at Chatsworth.
