Thursday 17th - Monday 21st September 2020
Britain is famous for its grand stately homes, with extensive art collections, beautiful décor and stunning gardens – Chatsworth is one of the finest. The home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family, there is a wealth of history, scenery and tales to discover here.
Matlock Illuminations features a unique parade of illuminated and decorated boats on the River Derwent every weekend throughout September and October. Each boat carries a decorated model and as darkness falls the boats disappear into the blackness below, leaving the models apparently gliding along just above the water.
