Things to do at Kedleston Hall review
Kedleston Hall is a National Trust property near Kedleston in Derbyshire. The hall is home to the Curzon family whose family line traces back to 1066. The house was built between 1759 and 1765.
You can look around the house and see its stunning Adam interiors. There is a museum where you can discover Britain’s colonial connections and you can follow in the footsteps of the Duchess using their trail. They also have children’s tracker packs that you can borrow.
The parkland at Kedleston is a great space for walks with a lake and woodland. There are a few walks around the estate one of which is around 1 hour and takes you past the restored Hermitage. Kids will love the balancing logs to play on along the way. You can take a slightly longer walk next to the lake with a grade 1 listed Adam bridge, cascades and a neoclassical style Fishing Pavillion and more. There are maps and walks to download on the National Trust website.
