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.

  • Beautiful spot just outside Derby. Large open grounds to walk around with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the sunshine. Really interesting but simple church on the site with hidden treasures throughout. The cafe is up to national trust standard with plenty of seating inside and outside. The house itself is like nowhere I've been before, stunning interiors reminiscent of a Roman villa/temple. There are knowledgeable guides in every room and information cards to highlight the significant features. The ground floor has its own museum with a previous lords collection from his time as viceroy of India which in itself was worth a good look. All in all a great visit, worth being a national trust member to avoid the £15 entrance fee.
  • Impressive grand house in the most wonderful and relaxing grounds. National Trust facilities as good as you would expect. I particularly like the sloping lawns to the rear of the house, where families can enjoy picnicking in the sunshine while relaxing on the thoughtfully provided deckchairs. The grounds are massive, with many ready walks available through fields and avenues of trees. A real treat!
  • Beautiful house and gardens. Ample parking and disabled facilities. The staff are very happy, friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent picnic facilities in stunning surroundings. We had a wonderful day out as a family and thoroughly recommend Kedleston Hall to everybody.
  • Superb national trust property set in beautiful spacious landscape. Spectacular rooms. Indian memorabilia wonderful. Check out the Peacock Dress, even with fake gems, truly stupendous.
  • Very nice place. Lots to see inside the museum section. Amazing Asian treasure's. The grand entrance is one of the finest i've seen so far. Definitely worth a visit.
