Travel from Ashbourne

Kedleston Hall is about 10 miles away, near to Derby.

The journey is around 10 miles if you take the back roads via Hulland Ward. However, the recommended route is to take the A52 to Derby and follow the brown tourist road signs, which is a few miles longer but a much better alternative for bigger cars or anyone not comfortable with very narrow single track roads.

There is no bus service.

Kedleston Hall is a easy 25 mile round trip bike ride from Ashbourne along quiet back-roads (via Osmaston to avoid the main road). You can usually use the cafe and cycle through the grounds even if you are not an NT member. Another good nearby cafe is at Maynell Langley garden centre.

It's too far to walk.
