There's still plenty of fun to be had this summer at Chatsworth House in the Peak District.  Here's a few highlights:

Chatsworth Country Fair: 31 Aug to 2 Sept - includes JCB Dancing Diggers, Household Cavalry Musical Ride, Celebrity Chefs (including Mary Berry) and K9 Aquasport.  There's 10% off tickets up to 27 Aug and it should be a great event for all the family to enjoy.

Chatsworth Renewed - every day and included in your admission there's a trail which highlights people involved in building, conserving and looking after Chatsworth House.  In the Inner Court Yard you can create your own urn too.

Baalington Lamb - every day and included in your admission try and find Baalington Lamb hidden throughout the house.  Each time you find him he has a fun fact or task to do.

Belvedere Tours: 12-3 pm - get a great view of the garden and park in this part of the house that is not often open to the public.

Paxton's Conservatory - every day and included in your admission meet by the maze and virtually tour the Great Conservatory with expert guides. 

Face painting: weekends and included in the admission price - near the maze.

Garden Games - around the maze area there's skittles, giant jenga and croquet.  Guides in vintage costume can answer questions about the rules of the games if needed.

Bands in the Rose Garden: weekends and included in the admission price - 18, 19, 25 and 26 August.

Heritage Crafts in the farmyard and playground: 21 Aug - have a go at wool spinning.
