Queen´s Park was built to celebrate the jubilee of Queen Victoria, and was opened in 1893. It has a lovely cricket ground, a lake with canadiand ucks that you are strictly forbidden to feed, a miniature train, and among other things a Victorian bandstand featuring music on Sunday afternoons in summer for spectators. At the entrance there from City Hall area you will find a vehicle that offers fantastic creamy ice creams, try them!
Chatsworth House is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful houses in England. It is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Derbyshire, and although they still live there, part of the house can be visited. You can also visit the gardens, where you could easily spend the day; they're huge! The forest contains gigantic trees from around the world, collected by previous dukes during their trips abroad. In the old greenhouses, you can see fruit and vegetables being grown for the owners' table, and there's an enormous fountain to admire, too. In addition, the gardens are often used for modern art exhibitions, and it is not uncommon to come across strange statues around a corner.
