Experience 18th century life at Kedleston Hall
Five miles from Burton-Upon-Trent is this attractive Neo-classical mansion, surrounded by historic parkland. Designed by the architect Robert Adam, the Hall has been home to the Curzon family since day one. An impressive sight indeed, and one that caught the eye of the makers of the blockbuster The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley, as it was used for location filming. With parkland, pleasure grounds and a museum to explore, it's one to set aside a day for.
