#4 of 70 in Sightseeing in Derbyshire
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Kedleston Hall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kedleston travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Great value as a national trust member. Plenty to see. With great gardens it makes for a fantastic picnic site. Didn't try the restaurant so can't comment. Decent parking, might be best to arrive early in summer though.
  • 1st visit, staff helpful and informative. Beautiful setting, long walk was good for wildlife. Views lovely. Good food on offer.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Lovely walks,church. Only downside we had was the house was closed but that's our own fault for not checking the dates and times for it . Will definitely be returning in the summer.
  • Lovely place for walking... Especially nice in autumnal weather, most beautiful gardens I've seen.
  • Beautiful house and grounds. There to lovely walks, a long and a shorter one. There is also a very pleasant café, reasonably priced. Cream tea is delicious.
