Kedleston Hall, Kedleston
(4.3/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • National Trust Members. Breath taking. No other words to describe the house. Simply breath taking. Gorgeous long driveway leading to the house. Lots of history relating to the family in India. Some amazing exhibits to view. Especially the Coronation Durbar dress. The building was absolutely outstanding. Tea room was a little disorganised. Possibly a busy day for them. There is no children's play area here. Still, this place is well worth a visit. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful grounds with roaming sheep.Astounding NT property with impressive interiors and trophy souvenirs gathered all over the world when the owner was Viceroy of India.Volunteers there were most informative.Definitely worth a visit!!
  • This is on my top ten best national trust properties to visit.
  • First rate stately home... lovely parkland, pleasure gardens, house and walks Savory cream teas to die for!!!
  • 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!
