Led by specialist guide, Shenagh Firth, this is an opportunity to go behind the scenes of this great house and learn more of its ‘Secrets and Surprises’. Each tour will delve into the work taking place at that time, therefore each one will be unique, focussing on a key area of the house in depth, and offering the chance to learn more about the particular projects taking place, such as restoring gold leaf on a wood carving, or deep cleaning a rare silk tapestry. These tours will include popular areas such as the Painted Hall, State Apartments, Sculpture Gallery and the Sketch Galleries, sharing their expertise, along with many anecdotes, secrets and tips.
The duration of each tour is between 60 - 90 minutes, and each will host only a small group, of no more than 20 guests. These guided tours are exclusively available to guests booking a ‘Secrets and Surprises’ package at The Cavendish at Baslow, Chatsworth Cottages or at one of the estate inns - The Devonshire Arms at Beeley or The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley.
