The hall at Kedleston is now open (Friday-Monday only.) Find out what you need to know for your visit.

We are delighted to open part of the state floor (first floor) of Kedleston Hall on Friday - Monday from 11am – 4pm with last entry at 3.30pm.

  • Please note, your pre-booked timed entry ticket provides access to the garden and parkland. If you would like to visit the hall, please make your way to the front of the hall where volunteers will greet you and let you know the expected queue time (if the hall is already at capacity.) You do not need to purchase an extra ticket for hall admission.
  • All visitors wishing to go into the hall should be ready to wear a face covering when entering the hall.
  • To keep you safe there is a one-way route through the hall and hand sanitising gel is available on entry and exit. Please make use of the handrails on the staircases.
  • There is a maximum capacity of 40 visitors inside the hall, therefore it may not be possible for everyone to access the hall during their visit. We expect weekends to be busier than weekdays.

At this time, a limited number of rooms on the first floor are open to visitors and are accessible by stairs only. The rooms open include the marble hall, saloon, library, drawing room and music room. This route should take between 20 - 35 minutes.
