Absolutely blown away when we visited Chatsworth for the Alice in Wonderland display a couple of years ago, but sorry this years just wasn`t as good and I think expensive. Paid £150 almost for 6 adults and one 4 year old, two toddlers went free. I also think it`s a cheek asking people to pay an additional £4 per car... More

I have been wanting to visit Chatsworth at Christmas for some years now and we were not disappointed. The theme for 2016 is 'The Nutcracker' and the rooms were decorated so beautifully. Well done to all the staff who make this happen. Shops and eats good at Chatsworth too and the staff were all so lovely, friendly and helpful. Super... More

Visited Chatsworth during December 2016 and although there is a lot of scaffolding up outside, the inside was visually stunning. Chatsworth house is a great place to visit and I have been there many times but never at Christmas. The house was decorated well and looked visually stunning. One of the great things about visiting Chatsworth is that you are... More

It was our first trip to Chatsworth with a large group of 9 adults and 5 children. Parking was a bit of a muddy start and costing £4 but it was quickly forgiven. The house is beautiful and I really loved the Christmas decorations. The kids loved the farm and playground along with the walks through the gardens and the... More

This was a most definite re-do. To visit Chatsworth House for a second time, was beyond my wildest dreams, when I never expected to visit it once. It is still pure class. We didn't take the escorted tour this time, we did it at our own leisure. Still well worth it. By not taking the tour it allowed us more... More

For many years, I have wanted to see Chatsworth decorated for Christmas, and this year was able to visit. What a treat -superb display of the Nutcracker, including ballerinas dancing in the rooms. Little children looking in amazement at the wonderfuL displays. It is well worth the visit- but prebook a time slot. Food on offer at the restaurant was... More

We visited Chatsworth house for the first time and were enamoured with the house and all the themed rooms. Well worth a visit. Get your ticket on line and parking is free. We had lunch and I was let down by the meal that I had. I chose pork belly with a lentil and herb crust, there was plenty of... More

How disappointing the house was this year. Far trees than in the past, cardboard decorations, even artificial christmas trees. There really wasn't much to see and it only took 35 minutes to walk all the way through. The ballerinas were nice but at almost £20 per ticket , I cannot recommend it.

I drive through Chatsworth Estate every so often and I must confess that each time, I stop just to look at the house and the water. It's breathtaking. Strange in a way that you can still drive right through the estate as and when you like due to it being an actual through road. Go and check it out for... More
