    , one of the largest houses in Europe and with a frontage wider than Buckingham Palace.  It’s two houses of totally different architectural styles built by the First Marquess of Rockingham in 1725. The west front of the house in the baroque style and the east front in the later Palladian style. It stands in 250 acres of park and with its East Front of over 600 feet. The house was sold in 2017 for £7m following a 5 year campaign by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust who have embarked on a major project to restore the house.



  • Chatsworth - Christmas is a spectacular time of the year at Chatsworth

    That's when they decorate the house, to create a magical Christmas wonderland to get everyone in the festive spirit.  Join us to see the famous Christmas candle-lit displays, which will take their inspiration from 'In a Land Far Away'. The lower floor of the house will be decorated in a visual celebration of timeless stories.



  • Join in the festive spirit at Chatsworth’s Christmas Festival

      -  Over 100 stalls, with live seasonal musical entertainment from brass bands to string quartets. Find the perfect presents for all the family from a wide range of stalls. Enjoy delicious food, with gourmet burgers, hotdogs, pancakes, churros, fudge and chocolate and treats galore.
