Kedleston Hall, Nr Quarndon, Derbyshire

18th century splendour at it’s best, now owned by the National Trust but originally built as a rival to Chatsworth, and they didn’t do too badly at all. Inside it’s an eclectic mix of grandeur, Edwardian interiors, and a collection of artefacts amassed by Lord Curzon when he was Viceroy of India. The grounds are typical of 18th century landscape design, with winding lawns, follies, a ha-ha and parkland to explore. There’s a Great Kitchen for hot and cold lunches and snacks for when you’re peckish.

Opening times vary throughout the year.
