What to do when you’re in… Derbyshire
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.
