Experience the Age of Elegance

Kedleston Hall is a neo-classical mansion set in landscaped park. Built 1759-65 for Nathanial Curzon, 1st Lord Searsdale, whose family have lived at Kedleston Hall since the 12th Century. Contains the most complete example of Robert Adams' interiors in England and is considered to be his finest work. For over 200 years visitors have been impressed by the vast marble hall and the salon with its coffered dome.

Now owned by the National Trust, the hall still has its unique collection of Eighteenth Century furniture, paintings and sculpture it was built to display. Lord Curzon's museum of Indian and Far Eastern Objects completes the collection. A National Trust Shop and Restaurant in the Great Kitchen enhances the visit and group bookings are very welcome. Discounts available. A day at Kedleston is truly an experience to remember!
