We were travelling with the dog so really appreciated the fact that we could bring him into the grounds for a walk while one of us waited with him and the others toured the house and then swapped over. There's lots to explore in the...More

Where does one start? Perhaps the gorgeous location with river, fields and woods surrounding the massive house and outbuildings. Or it could be the gem of the interior with masses of furniture, artwork etc to see. Maybe the extensive gardens that are so varied and...More

We had a good day here and the staff were all excellent. I thought £21.00 each to get in was very steep and was horrified when we had to pay a further £4 for the car park. I understand that people park here and don’t...More

Chatsworth House is more than a beautiful house and garden. It is filled with tapestries, carved paneling, sculptures and ever appealing beauty. My favorite sculpture is the Veiled Vestal Lady carves in stone.

I can only suggest that you contact Chatsworth House itself with that question. I know there is public transport from Bakewell, but have no idea about Buxton.

If you purchase your tickets on line parking is included. If you buy 'at the door' then parking is £4 extra. If you have a car, then I'd put in the post code and drive up as it is in a very beautiful but secluded area.
