About Kedleston Hall

Kedleston Hall is an extravagant temple to the arts designed by the architect Robert Adam (commissioned in the 1750s by Nathaniel Curzon). The house is framed by historic parkland and boasts opulent interiors intended to impress.

The Museum at Kedleston has over 1,000 objects from across the Asian continent. This collection was brought together by George Nathaniel Curzon, Viceroy of India between 1899 and 1905, and houses the many objects he amassed during his travels in South Asia and the Middle East. Research is now underway to conserve and inform a re-presentation of this colonial collection.

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.
