Chatsworth visitor orientation

Wayfinding at Chatsworth

Chatsworth is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.

Famous for its rich history, historic and modern waterworks and sculptures, its Victorian rock garden and maze, there is something for everyone in the 105-acre Chatsworth Garden.

ABG Design was approached by Chatsworth to improve the signage on visitor journeys throughout the Gardens and ensure it performed well at all orientation points within the Garden.

We devised a simple, modular and functional signage scheme that sits calmly in its surroundings. Created from oak posts and resin panels, the sign display clear messaging in a contemporary style that doesn’t attempt to mimic the historic setting.

Our design provided a consistent style throughout the visitor journey, at a low level to lessen the impact on the stunning surroundings.
