Bolsover Castle's an elegant example of architectural finesse,

from the crenulated Wall Walks to the Fountain Garden

At Hardwick Hall, surprises aren't thin on the ground either.

This Elizabethan masterpiece was home to duchesses,

from Bess of Hardwick to Evelyn, the last lady of Hardwick,

 from the bedrooms to the stately halls.

Chatsworth House is a living museum,

 gallery and home to Derbyshire's leading family,

 containing one of Europe's most significant art collections,

from garden sculptures and water features

 through to classic art and modern commissions

like the DNA tiles on the long gallery walls.
