Kedleston Hall is a classical Palladian mansion built in the mid-18th century for the Curzon family. The house has the most complete sequence of Robert Adam interiors in England with magnificent state rooms retaining great collections of paintings and original furniture. The Eastern Museum has a collection of Viceroy Curzon´s artefacts from India, including the celebrated `peacock dress´ worn by his wife. The partly restored gardens, also designed by Adam, include a fine bridge, fishing pavilion and a beautiful series of lakes.

"Once occupied by the great lady who provided the inspiration for Downton Abbey's Lady Grantham, and one of the locations used for filming the Keira Knightley film The Duchess, Kedleston Hall is a stunning Neo-Classical mansion surrounded by historic parkland. Must-sees include the state rooms - one of the most complete sequences of Robert Adam interiors in England - the Colonial treasures of the Eastern Museum, and the superb original collection of paintings and sculpture."
