Chatsworth House

Chatsworth House

We experience the grandeur of Chatsworth House, the ancestral home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, which has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. Situated in the heart of the Peak District, Chatsworth House is one of the UK’s real gems. Stroll through 25 rooms and marvel at works of art spanning over 4,000 years, including magnificent ornate ceilings, Roman and Egyptian sculptures, plus paintings from artists including Rembrandt and Van Dyck.

Every grand staircase and room you enter is like a scene from a period drama, a feast for the eyes with some of the finest and priceless art to exist in the world. The Sculpture Gallery is equally impressive and features a collection of items collected over the years including large white marble Italian sculptures and the largest vase in the world made from Blue John stone.

Outside, the 105-acre gardens are also a real treat with perfectly manicured lawns, spectacular flower beds and a rockery garden, all of which can be explored by wandering on foot along the five miles of designated trails. There are plenty of sculptures to discover in the grounds too as well as numerous ponds and fountains, most notably the eye-catching Cascade waterfall which flows down 24 different shaped steps.

Manchester

Manchester

Fancy a trip to Manchester? You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping! The Arndale Centre has all your favourite high street brands plus a food court with plenty of choice for lunch. You’ll find designer boutiques in King Street, plus a Selfridges and Harvey Nichols in Exchange Square. Deansgate, the main street through Manchester, is packed with cafes and restaurants covering all different types of cuisine and just outside the city there’s also the Trafford Centre – a huge shopping complex of high street shops – get ready to shop ‘til you drop!

Salford Quays is also well worth a closer look. Once the site of the Manchester docks, it was upgraded as part of a massive urban regeneration project, resulting in the contemporary waterfront we see today and is home to some fabulous attractions including The Lowry theatre, the Imperial War Museum North and the northern hub for both ITV and the BBC.  The Quayside outlet mall provides more retail therapy opportunities but be sure to put your feet up in the myriad bars and restaurants – perfect for people watching along the glistening waterfront!
