We paid £65 for 2 adults and an 8 year old child to visit . It took us less than an hour to go round at a fairly slow pace. The fairy tale theme was not well done, lots of Christmas trees but only one...More

Finally managed to visit Chatsworth to enjoy the house decorated for Christmas! I booked tickets for the twilight event in a Thursday evening with my parents and other members of the family. Very well organised and a great idea to stagger booking times to avoid...More
