CHRISTMAS AT CHATSWORTH - Saturday 9 December 2017.
Chatsworth House, set in a breath-taking deer park in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, is a magnificent stately mansion which has been the family home of many generations of the Dukes of Devonshire and the family still live there today. Luckily, they share it with us and we will spend the day exploring the House and gardens. After a lovely drive through the Derbyshire countryside, we will arrive at Chatsworth where you will have time to lunch in one of the restaurants and look around the gift shops before touring the House at 1.30pm. At your own pace, you can tour the staterooms, galleries, dining rooms and Library in the House itself, which, in addition to the beautiful artwork and tapestries, will be lavishly decorated for Christmas with a Dickens theme. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore the beautiful landscaped gardens, fountains and sculptures and try to find the centre of the Maze!
Before we head for home, we will call in to the well-stocked Estate Farm Shop to pick up a few Christmas goodies!
