Extended summer opening at Chatsworth gardens

Chatsworth is helping visitors to make the most of the hazy days of summer with special extended openings of its beautiful 105-acre garden taking place for the first time.

As well as the opportunity to see the garden in a different light, a new hop-on hop-off land train service will help visitors explore the furthest reaches of the garden.

The garden will now stay open until 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays up to and including August 29 to allow visitors to experience the garden at dusk when it really comes into its own.

With no additional cost to daytime admission, there is also an option to buy an evening only ticket for visits from 6pm priced at £6 adult and £3.50 children, available on the gate or via www.chatsworth.org with free entry for Friends of Chatsworth.

Flora’s Temple and the Laurent Perrier Champagne Bar on the Broadwalk will be open.

Bands will be playing every weekend in the Rose garden and a classical string trio will be adding ambience during the late garden openings.
