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 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. Finally visited the house so thought i would update. Absolutely stunning in there. And the staff were very knowledgeable.
  • This is up there with my favourite National Trust venues. The church is a nice little surprise, too. The Marble Hall and the vicerine's peacock gown are worth a look, to say the least. As well as the museum and book collection. And in true NT fashion, there is a second hand bookshop. They're always worth a quick look!
  • We're on a bit of a mission to visit as many 'Stately Homes' that the weather will allow during the School Holidays. Being member of the NT helps;-) Not sure how we'd missed this gem off our list, but now happily rectified. This has to be the first one where you can almost smell the money of the family that owned it - in fairly recent Victorian/Edwardian era. Everywhere is opulence on a grand scale. The whole place is essentially one man's 'Grand Design' with a bit of assistance from a Scottish chap. Wonderful place for a day out, as the grounds are equally beautiful, with a few walks for the intrepid.
  • What opulence! Elephant tusks all about and a glass display case full of ivory carvings. Our ancestors have a lot to answer for! Magnificent rooms and a billiard table to die for.
  • Large NT house in large grounds. We went on the long walk and you do need wellies if not hot. Pretty church that you can go in. And the best NT tearoom I've been in..it is in the great? kitchen which still looks like a kitchen..it has been done lovely.
