Reasons for trip

Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire is an outstanding example of Palladian architecture and was built as a “temple to the arts”. Although it was created as a showpiece, the family have lived in the house since it was built. It certainly does display great art and fine furniture, but also illustrates the family’s wealth and power. It is all set in magnificent parkland.

When we visited it was not possible to explore the full extent of the building’s collections because of Covid restrictions, which we fully understood. (However, this did not stop another visitor complaining loudly to the patient volunteer guide!) Once the property reopens again, I’m sure that visitors will be able to see the whole collection.

What we did see was amazing and impressive. While we were there we also visited the shop and of course the restaurant for our favourite National Trust food. A great day out!
