Shrewsbury U3A visits Kedleston Hall a National Trust Property in Derbyshire.
Kedleston Hall is a building of enduring architectural beauty which was completed under the watchful eye of the famous architect Robert Adam. Built for Sir Nathaniel Curzon in 1765 as a house to rival Chatsworth, it was intended as a temple of the arts. Indeed, the main house was never meant to be a family home but a show palace to display the finest paintings, sculpture and furniture.
Investigate Kedleston Hall. From Rome to India, explore the opulent interiors of the 18th Century palace and find the hidden treasures in Lord Curzon Eastern Museum
Enjoy the park and garden. Kedleston’s Pleasure Grounds are one of the best surviving examples of an 18th Century informal landscape
The Great Kitchen Restaurant serves up hot and cold lunches and snacks
