Earlier this year work started on the former bachelor apartments to convert them into a new exhibition space, leading off the vestibule between the Great Dining Room and the Sculpture Gallery. Opening on the 27th May, the ‘New Gallery’ exhibition will tell the story of the 6th Duke of Devonshire, Victorian Britain’s most inspirational and eligible bachelor, and the dramatic impact he had on Chatsworth. The finishing touches are now being added to the exhibition, which will feature items such as his autograph book, diary, and treasures from his collection. We look forward to welcoming all of our visitors to take a look!
