Read full description of the books:
When I toured this spectacular "house" in May 2014, I purchased the most recent edition of this book. I had wanted to see the huge estate for years - it far exceeded my high expectations. This book is a history of the family, the house, and the gardens with wonderful photos of much of it. If you saw the 2005 production of Pride and Prejudice, you got glimpses of Chatsworth House which is Mr. Darcy's Pemberley in the film. Even the big screen cannot do justice to this palace-like house, filled with treasures - it's even deemed a Treasure House of England. The book features the 30 opulent State Rooms on tour (there are actually 300 rooms in all) with photographs of them and some of the treasures. Several pages are devoted to the gardens, and the working estate. All of it is very interesting. This is an excellent keepsake for your trip albums, as it's very well written and answers a lot of questions. If you're a Downton Abbey fan, Chatsworth House will blow your mind. If you don't tour the house in person, the house will give you a very good introduction to it. I highly recommend the guidebook - it's one of the better ones.
