We had been looking forward to visiting Chatsworth House for a long time as we had previously been members of the National Trust and had enjoyed visiting many stately homes.Quite simply this is not a home but would be better described as a museum.Lots of art and sculptures,but no atmosphere,all very clinical.
The ceiling paintings were very beautiful,however,none of the rooms are particularly memorable in their own right.All the rooms seem to come together and create one long museum.As we... (read more)

After living in Derbyshire for several years, i felt that it was important to visit this magnificent statley home. On family arriving from Canada we decided that now was the best time.
I was astounded to find that the full family ticket was a staggering £48.00, which i deem as extortionate!!!! Sadly i believe the cost of the ticket tinged how i felt about the whole day as i do not believe that Chatsworth is in any way shape or form 'value for money'.
The house was very nice, but the rooms... (read more)

House wasn't fully open, probably only half of the rooms. Couldn't see anything on their web-site to tell us this. Really unhappy having seen half of the house and then ending up in the gift shop. A massive disappointment. Also, how do a family get in for 16.50 (previous review)? (read more)

Derbyshire, Chatsworth House is Fantastic. House-More of a museum piece than a house the grandness of it is wonderful with beautiful ceilings and an awesome gem collection. A little busy but that does not spoil it and it is one of the finest pieces of architecture ANYWHERE. Gardens-Amazing. Brilliant. What more can I say? With the fun maze, gorgeous borders as well as some excellent statues, a fantastic view to the house and the amazing mining tunnel which you can walk through these are the... (read more)

I took my family to Chatsworth after driving through the park the previous week. They'd spotted the Emperor fountain and just kept nagging to go and have a look. So, we paid to go into the Gardens, £16.50 for a family plus £2 to park, and I have to say, after two weeks of school holidays and visits to all sorts of places, including the National Space Centre, I thought it was really good value for money. The fact that this was probably the hottest April day ever, just added to our... (read more)

Set in the rolling hills of Derbyshire next to the river Derwent, this fine stately home, which is still lived in my the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, was voted best loved stately home in the UK by readers of the Radio Times magazine and Channel 5.
Chatsworth House is lavish, with many great works of art and contains a wonderful sculpture gallery and chapel. This is set in one of the most beautiful and interesting landscaped gardens and over 1000 acres of parkland. (read more)
