Autumn at Kedleston Hall

autumn colour in Kedleston's pleasure ground

The warmer summer days have drawn to a close and the lush greenery of summer dramatically transitions into vibrant bursts of deep russets and gold. Take a stroll through the vast parkland as the whole landscape changes into an Autumn paradise.

Kedleston is the perfect autumnal backdrop, a landscape of changing colours, with the American Oak's striking red leaves and the Larch's rusty golden hues. There are plenty of opportunities to sit and admire the landscape views, with benches along the popular short, long and lakeside walk routes.
