Fleecy Easter fun at Kedleston Hall

We love Easter here at Kedleston, the flowers in the pleasure ground are springing into action and the parkland is teeming with wildlife. Keep a look out for the new lambs, they're always a big hit with visitors as they scamper about. This Easter we’re celebrating all things woolly with plenty of fun craft activities and trails on offer!

Spring is the perfect time to head out on an adventure around the parkland. We’re lucky to be the home of lots of local wildlife and down by the lake is the best place for bird spotting. If you're lucky you might see some new arrivals!

There’s over 800 acres to explore and you’re more than welcome to bring your four legged friend with you. We do ask they are kept on a lead so they don’t accidentally disturb nesting birds.

Binoculars make a great tool for bird watching
