How to book

Deposits for Christmas visits
Groups visiting at weekends or during the Christmas market are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of £200 to secure their booking.
During Christmas, from the week before the Christmas market to the week after, all coaches must pre-pay for their visit two weeks before arrival. During this time, alternative arrangements for coach drop off and parking will also apply.
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.
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.
