Kedleston Hall

Kedleston Hall is a stately home in Derbyshire, England, about four miles north west of Derby, one of the National Trust Properties in England.

This country mansion was designed by Robert Adam, started in 1759 and completed in 1765. It is the historic home of the Curzon[?] family since 1765. In the house, Lady Curzon's Delhi Durbah Coronation dress of 1903 can be seen, as well as the Lord Curzon the Viceroy's collection of Far Eastern artefacts. There are also many famous paintings, sculpture and furniture, earning the Kedleston the name "Temple of the Arts".

The Gardens include parkland, lakes, cascades and woodland walks.
