Kedleston Hall

Recommended
A number of architects, all of whom worked in the neo-Classical style, contributed to Curzon's family seat, starting with Matthew Brettingham who designed the Palladian mansion, James Paine who built the north front and Robert Adam who added the south front and the interior decoration from 1560. The rooms centre on the Marble Hall. The brightly coloured Drawing Room is the work of Adam. Note the 19m-high dome above the rotunda. In the Ante Room and Dressing Room are works by 17C and 18C masters.
