Chatsworth Renewed: The house past, present and future

Chatsworth Renewed

Join Chatsworth House in 2018 to celebrate the finale of Chatsworth’s re-construction and appreciate the monumental effort and skill of the people involved.

For five hundred years people have carefully manipulated nature’s materials and managed the elements to create the house, garden and park. Hear from these skilled men and women as we highlight hidden corners of the house, peel back layers and share their stories past and present.

Chatsworth House invite you to get up close and personal with the fabric of the house and see things from a new angle. Climb the Belvedere to see the vast tracts of new lead on the roofs, discover what’s under the floor in the Chapel Corridor, appreciate the newly restored tapestries while settled on a cosy sheepskin fleece in the State Drawing Room, see rare plans and drawings, even grab a torch and pick out the details that most fascinate you.

In order to have continuity there must be change. As Chatsworth look at the past, they invite you to imagine the future. What will the next 100 years bring?
