Visitors will be checking out the treasures that lie behind impressive front doors and marvelling at the sumptuous decor inside such gems as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

While a couple of jewels in Derbyshire’s crown will reopen their doors this month, others will stay shut for a while longer but still offer a stunning backdrop for those exploring their beautiful grounds.
