A new festive light display has been launched at Chatsworth House gardens - and it looks spectacular

See Chatsworth House garden like you’ve never seen it before as a new light installation opens to the public.

See the historic house lit up along with its famous 105-acre garden during the second national lockdown, designed to give you that festive feeling during the second national lockdown.

You can see the sculptures and water features illuminated until January 3.

Also running in the garden is a ‘12 days of Christmas trail’ which features “highlights from the garden”.

A Chatsworth spokesman said: “While the house may be closed, reopening on December 3, you can still get that festive feeling in the garden. With our 12 days of Christmas trail and illuminated features after dusk - we have fun for all the family this winter.

"From dusk key features in the garden will be illuminated – follow the lights along the Broadwalk to the Ring Pond, Willow Tree Fountain and more. The illuminations are best viewed from 3.30pm.”

The garden, car parks, takeaway shops and estate farm shop are currently open at Chatsworth.

The house, farmyard, gift shops and restaurants will reopen on December 3, after the second lockdown has ended.

All tickets can be booked here.
