Kedleston Hall

Kedleston HallKedleston Hall in Derbyshire was erected in the 1760`s by the first Baron Scarsdale, on the site of large buildings that had been occupied by the Curzon family for hundreds of years. It is the last built of Derbyshire`s great houses, to a design by Robert Adam and it remains one of the finest examples of his work. It is now owned by the National Trust, with present members of the Scarsdale family still living in a small part of it. It contains a splendid Marble Hall with rows of 25ft high pink alabaster columns surrounding the room. The state rooms contain much magnificent furniture and paintings, some of which was brought back from India by George Curzon when he was Viceroy there, from 1899 to 1905. There are extensive gardens and a restaurant.
