The National Trust are having a "Free weekend properties" this weekend only, so I thought that it would be a good opportunity to visit a local NT property completely free of charge.
Please note: you will need to download a voucher here:
Each voucher admits two adults over 16.
This is a good deal as the normal Adult admission price is £8.90 per person.
As well as the house and the garden, there are a number of set walks that can be done - time and weather permitting.
Meet at noon at Kedleston Hall.
Spectacular 18th-century mansion with Adam interiors and parkland
Take a trip back in time to the 1760s at this spectacular Neo-classical mansion framed by historic parkland.
Designed for lavish entertaining and displaying an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and original furnishings, Kedleston is a stunning example of the work of architect Robert Adam.
The Curzon family have lived here since the 12th-century and continue to live at the Hall. Lord Curzon's Eastern Museum is a treasure trove of fascinating objects acquired on his travels in Asia and while Viceroy of India (1899 to 1905).
The Hall was used as a key location for 'The Duchess', the recent Hollywood blockbuster.
