Kedleston Hall is a neo-class mansion dating from the 1700’s with 820 acres of parkland and pleasure grounds near Derby in Derbyshire.

The house was designed to be a show-piece for entertaining and contains collections of period furniture and artwork including paintings and sculptures plus items from the owners travels around Asia. A costumed housekeeper gives a ten minute introductory talk about the Hall. Some of the rooms visitors can see include the Marble hall which looks like a Roman temple, the domed saloon, the dining room, the dressing room, the billiard room and a trophy corridor with examples of Edwardian taxidermy. The house and grounds were used as set locations in the filming of the 2008 ‘The Duchess’ film.
