Kedleston Hall is a neo-classical mansion set in landscaped park. Built 1759-65 for Nathanial Curzon, 1st Lord Searsdale, whose family have lived at Kedleston Hall since the 12th century. Contains the most complete example of Robert Adams' interiors in England and is considered to be his finest work. For over 200 years visitors have been impressed by the vast marble hall and the salon with its coffered dome. Now owned by the National Trust, the hall still has its unique collection of 18th-century furniture, paintings and sculpture on display. Lord Curzon's museum of Indian and Far Eastern Objects completes the collection. Groups welcome, discounts available. Tel: 01332 842 191 Fax: +44 (0)1332 841 972
