Description

Just a few miles out of Derby, take a trip back in time to the 1760s at this spectacular Neo-classical mansion framed by historic parkland.

Now cared for by the National Trust, Kedleston Hall was designed for lavish entertaining and displaying an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and original furnishings, Kedleston is a stunning example of the work of architect Robert Adam.

The Curzon family have lived here since the 12th-century and continue to live at the Hall. Lord Curzon's Eastern Museum contains fascinating objects acquired on his travels in Asia and while Viceroy of India (1899 to 1905).

The Hall was used as a key location for the film 'The Duchess', starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes, and also ‘Tarzan’, starring Alexander Skarsgard and Samuel L Jackson.

Don’t miss the walks in the 800 acres of parkland, where dogs on leads are always welcome.
