Kedleston Hall & Gardens, near Derby
These pleasure grounds at Kedleston Hall, National Trust, were created by Lord Scarsdale with designs and buildings by Robert Adam.
Between 1922 and 1924 some of the grounds and gardens at Kedlestone Hall were redesigned with help from Edward Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll. Today the present plantings give an 18th century feel, with buildings and monuments including an Orangery.
There are fine trees, shrubs, azaleas and rhododendrons, roses, and good autumn tints.
The stunning house with Robert Adam's interiors is also open and a must see. It also houses Lord Curzon's Eastern museum with many objects from his time as Viceroy of India.
There is a 3.5 mile walk which gives extensive views.
