Kedleston is a hamlet in Derbyshire, 4 miles from Derby.

Kedleston Hall is generally regarded as the finest Robert Adam house in England. It was built between 1759 and 1765 for Nathaniel Curzon, who was the first Baron Scarsdale. The Curzon family have lived at Kedleston for over 700 years.

There is a fine collection of family portraits and old masters.

The gardens are outstanding, as is the parkland, featuring an Adam bridge and boathouse.

Kedleston Hall is now in the care of the National Trust.

All Saints Church, close to the house, dates from the 13th century, and contains many family monuments.
