Kedleston Hall, Kedleston

Be transported back to the 1760s at Kedleston Hall, a neoclassical mansion. Explore its opulent interiors, designed for lavish entertaining and to display the Curzon family’s extensive collection of artworks and original furnishings. Listen to an introductory talk by Mrs. Garnett (or the actor who plays her), an 18th-century housekeeper who served at the mansion for 43 years. Make sure you look for her portrait in the smoking room. Step outside and stretch your legs in the parkland along one of five waymarked walks. Afterward, you can refuel in the Great Kitchen restaurant, located in the former 18th-century kitchens, or grab a snack from the kiosk located in the grounds. Pick up a souvenir from the on-site shop. Using our online itinerary creator, Kedleston attractions like Kedleston Hall can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A beautiful day out. The house is amazing. Can highly recommend. There is somewhere to enjoy food, or take a picnic.
  • Another example of a beautiful English stately house - well managed gardens. Would have been nice to have horses in the summer stables exhibition. The interior of The house is beautiful, shame that light fingered guests have forced the national trust to remove a lot the display items..never the less volunteers on hand in every room that are a wealth of information
