4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Gorgeous scenery, an astounding bit of history, delightful architecture, and an overwhelming dose of the grandiose. Well worth a visit - especially for national trust members!
  • Well this house is stunning and I can not see why anybody would not like it. I highly recommend this to any one!!!! well anyone with good taste that is!!!! DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY BAD COMMENTS ON HERE!!!! The house is perfect well done national trust!!!! Xx😊
  • The building looked quite impressive, unfortunately that was all it was. The signage is appalling firstly. The restaurant....why are dogs not allowed in? The floors are stone and it is a cafe not restaurant but apart from that there w nowhere to eat food purchased from the said cafe. Apparently, in summer there is a winter nothing. When will these places wake up to the fact that they would make MUCH more money if they catered for people with dogs (the majority of people walking today had got dogs with them). There is no reason whatsoever for dogs not being allowed inside as many similar places do allow dogs in which is great and to the benefit of both the public who can enjoy some food and the owners who can make more profit. The park was snow covered and as we walked at the back of the hall we suddenly came to the edge of the grass with an 6/8 foot sheer drop over. This was totally invisible in the snow, possibly in summer you would see it today it look as though the park carried on at the same level. If the dogs had been loose or if small children had been running they would have gone straight over with possibly very dire consequences. Not warnings, no signs, no fence. This should be addressed with urgency. Sadly having travelled over an hour to get to the hall it was a very disappointing day out and one we will not repeat.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Well worth a look.
  • Great FREE attraction but not enough footpaths and the back garden was a bit small I think the gardeners were slacking 😅
