Spectacular location
Set in the stunning grounds of Chatsworth House, the show offers the opportunity to experience ‘Capability’ Brown’s unforgettable landscapes, relax on the banks of the River Derwent and indulge in views of one of the UK’s most spectacular stately homes.

Design Revolutionaries
Following in the footsteps of Chatsworth’s design revolutionaries ‘Capability’ Brown and Joseph Paxton, there will be gardens, displays and features from hotly-tipped designers.

Spectacular displays in an iconic structure
