Chatsworth reveals secrets

Have your say

A behind-the-scenes insight into how Chatsworth House is run is promised this winter as staff give a series of talks to explain how they keep it in top condition.

Talks are from staff including head housekeeper, Christine Robinson, head of arts and historic collections, Matthew Hirst, and head of gardens and landscape, Steve Porter.

The talks will take place every Friday from January 18 to March 8 in the Hartington Room at the Chatsworth Stables.

Places need to be booked in advance and cost £10 per person.

Log onto or call 01246 565430.

Visitors can also view pictures by local artists called Peak District Artisans at Chatsworth from January.
