To help ensure the health and wellbeing of our visitors and colleagues, all visitors must adhere to current government guidelines relating to Covid-19, and follow any other guidance provided at Chatsworth.

We have implemented a number of safety measures across the estate. These include:

  • Requiring all visitors to wear face coverings in the house, and encouraging face coverings to be worn in our shops and catering outlets. Anyone without a face covering will not be allowed into the house, other than those who are exempt.
  • Temporarily removing some written information and our multimedia guide from the house route.
  • Increasing the frequency and breadth of cleaning routines.
  • Adding acrylic screens at our payment points and asking all visitors to use contactless/card payments to avoid the handling of cash.
  • Encouraging all customers to leave contact details in accordance with NHS Test and Trace guidance, in our seated restaurants and cafés.


From 6 November 2021 to 9 January 2022, the house will be decorated for Christmas. To enable social distancing, the route through the house is one way and selected rooms are closed.


Please be aware that there is no pass out/re-entry to the garden after 3pm for visits between 6 November 2021 and 9 January 2022.


Please note that part of the playground is currently closed awaiting renovation. We apologise for any disappointment, however our daily craft and animal handling sessions, as well as milking demonstrations, are all included with the price of entry.

Car parks

Booking online for our car parks is essential during Christmas, 6 November to 9 January.
