Chatsworth Christmas Market 2023

Posted October 2, 2023

When is Chatsworth Christmas Market 2023?

It’s just been announced – the Chatsworth Christmas Market 2023 starts on Saturday 4th  November 2023 and it’s on until 26th November 2023. The Christmas Market in 2022 was nothing short of fabulous – I admit to going three times to Chatsworth and encouraging my neighbours too.

The one drawback, the parking can be expensive at £28 per car at the weekends and £17 per car weekdays although there is a reduction after 3pm. So of course, get the bus which luckily stops right outside Sheriff Lodge B&B, Matlock. It’s a lovely journey through some pretty little villages in the Peak District. Giving you even more of a feel for this beautiful part of the country and the Derbyshire Dales.

The approach into Chatsworth Estate is of course spectacular and at dusk and dawn the deer are running which is a real sight to behold. You can also visit Chatsworth House during this time, where the Christmas At Chatsworth display will be on from 4th November 2023 also until early January 2024. Again a wonderful sight of giant Christmas Trees, decorated beautifully.

December at Chatsworth House & Estate

The stalls are set up on the hard standing next to Chatsworth House and there are about one hundred twinkling houses all with pretty, tempting presents and goods to make your Christmas so exciting and magical.

There is of course mulled wine, burgers, roasting chestnuts, hog roasts and hot chocolate to name a few of the temptations. That’s before you start on the handmade velvet baubles, fresh door wreaths, small as well as large stockings fillers. I should also mention the luxury soaps, local flavoured gins and exquisite flavoured homemade chocolates. The choirs from the various local churches and societies make the whole experience well worth it. Dogs are very welcome and there are plenty of handmade and commercial presents for them too.

As this year the market opens on 4th November 2023. Anyone would come away from the Chatsworth Christmas Market itching with childish excitement and expectation for the Big Day.
