REVEL IN CHATSWORTH HOUSE

While you’re in the Mid­lands, take a tour of this daz­zling stately home that has be­longed to 16 gen­er­a­tions of the same fam­ily. It’s not hard to see why Chatsworth in­spired envy in Sir Nathaniel Cur­zon, who com­mis­sioned Robert Adam to de­sign a wor­thy ri­val at nearby Kedle­ston Hall. Art lovers will be in their ele­ment, ex­plor­ing the 30 rooms filled with an­cient sculp­tures and price­less paint­ings, in­clud­ing works by mod­ern artists. Un­til 21st Oc­to­ber, Chatsworth is cel­e­brat­ing its restora­tion by high­light­ing the sto­ries of those who have helped it to re­main one of the world’s finest des­ti­na­tions.
