Castles & Country Houses, Gardens & Parks
Kedleston Hall has been the seat the Curzon family since the 13th century. In the 1970s, the last owner, Francis Curzon, 3rd Viscount Scarsdale, handed the estate over to the National Trust. However the family is allowed to live rent-free in the 23-room Family Wing.

This wing contains an adjoining garden and two rent-free flats for servants or other family members.

The house was designed by James Paine and Matthew Brettingham, the Palladian arciticts. The interior, park and gardens, covering 324 ha (800 acers) is the work of Robert Adams.

The Hall contains a stunning collection of furniture, paintings, potraits and objects of art
