Visit to Kedleston Hall
- Kedleston Hall |
Built between 1759 and 1765 for the Curzon family, who have lived in the area since the 12th century, Kedleston Hall boasts the most complete and least-altered sequence of Robert Adam interiors in England. The gardens have been restored in part to an 18th-century 'pleasure ground' and there are several walks around the 820-acre park.
Art Fund members have the same access as National Trust members to this property, which has received donations from the Fund, including a recent addition to the silver collection.
On this occasion, have a special guided tour from the property manager, Victoria Flanagan, who will include the exhibition of costumes and changes made to the interior during the filming of ‘The Duchess’ with the visit.
The tour will be followed by lunch, after which there are optional tours of the great west stable or fishing pavilion. Otherwise, you are free to revisit the interior at your leisure, or stroll in the park.
