Chatsworth unveils 6th Duke of Devonshire exhibition to mark 200th anniversary - VIDEO

Chatsworth is undertaking a series of celebrations to mark 200 years since the 6th Duke William Spencer Cavendish, also known as the ‘Bachelor Duke’.

His innovative and modern attitude, as well as his partnership with talented gardener Joseph Paxton helped make Chatsworth the palace it is today.

There is an exhibition of the Duke’s life, set in the ‘Bachelor apartments’ built by the Duke himself, and an accompanying Facebook page in his name, updated with real extracts from his diaries.
