This November, my classmates and I from SA High School of the Liberal Arts were invited to visit a home in Derbyshire, England. This was no ordinary house. Chatsworth House is a vast estate, built in the 16th century. Today it’s home to the 12th Duke of Devonshire, Peregrine Cavendish. It’s also home to famous works of fine art by the likes of Michelangelo and Da Vinci, a 1,000-acre park, and beautiful sculpture gardens. And thanks to Sotheby’s, Chatsworth House, and Success Academy — we got an inside look at the home that very few people get to experience.
While leaving the country and taking a plane for the first time was intimidating — it was totally worth it! We saw British history up close and personal and learned from true experts in the field. This trip furthered my desire to travel the world and learn about different cultures everywhere. What we saw taught me more than any 67-minute history class.
