Wednesday 11th May 2022 – Chatsworth
Chatsworth, the seat of the Duke of Devonshire, has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549. It is a beautiful grade 1 listed English Baroque house in Derbyshire. The house is set in expansive parkland and contains an important collection of paintings, furniture, old master drawings, neoclassical sculptures, books and other artefacts.
Following our excellent study day on Chatsworth, and by popular demand, we will revisit the house.
After our coach journey, there will be time to wander round the grounds before a special treat of lunch in a private dining room. Lunch will be a 2 course hot meal with tea or coffee.
In the afternoon we will have a full tour of the house in small groups to learn more about the wonderful treasures to be found there.
Chatsworth has been selected several times as the nation’s favourite Country House.
Tickets will be on sale at the March 2022 meeting one hour before each lecture, and later meetings if tickets remain.
