About this attraction
Kedleston Hall is a breath-taking neo-classical house set in landscaped parkland. The house was built between 1759 and 1765 for Sir Nathaniel Curzon to house his collection of fine paintings and furniture and has the most complete and unaltered examples of Robert Adam interiors in England.
The Curzon family have lived at Kedleston since the 12th-century and continue to live at the Hall. Lord Curzon's Eastern Museum is a treasure trove of fascinating objects acquired on his travels in Asia and while Viceroy of India (1899 to 1905). The Hall was used as a key location for 'The Duchess', the recent Hollywood blockbuster.
From spring to autumn Kedleston’s formal garden offers a colourful interpretation of its original 18th century design. The expansive grounds with both long and short walks, feature sweeping vistas of Kedleston’s parkland and provide access to a rich array of wildlife.
