    Chatsworth House

    by stevezero Written Jan 31, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chatsworth House is probably the top tourist attraction in Derbyshire.
    In is sited in a magnificent setting, overlooking the River Derwent, with majestic gardens containing huge water features.
    The house is also rich with art and treasures.
    The present palladian style mansion was built by the first Duke of Devonshire in 1707.
    Many outstanding rooms are contained within the house, perhaps the finest being the dining room in the north wing.
    The extensive gardens originally laid out by Capability Brown were later extensively changed by Sir Joseph Paxton, who constructed the Emperor Fountain, with it's gravity fed jet of water 290 ft high.
    Also at Chatsworth are a gift shop, farmyard, garden centre, farm shop and a restaurant.

    You have not been to Bakewell unless you have tried the famous Bakewell Pudding. Dont get confused with Bakewell tarts that you can buy in any food shop in England, the two things are very diffierent.

    Walking around

    The bridge carrying the main road through Bakewell. A really nice area to have a short stroll, sit down, feed the ducks or just simply watch the fish in the river. When crossing the bridge care should be taken as the footpath is not very wide, you get some one coming in the opposite direction and one of you will have to turn sideways......please remember this if you have children.

    The River Wye cuts a swathe through Bakwell, and it is nice to walk along its banks and take in the architecture and people of the town.
