This afternoon we visit Denby Pottery Village where you have time to explore at leisure before returning to your hotel for dinner.

 

Day Three

This morning we visit the National Memorial Arboretum, a 150 acre site which is home to over 330 thought provoking memorials covering both military and civilian associations along with tributes to individuals.  Rich in design and symbolism and sympathetic to the lush gardens they inhabit, the memorials and their stories are fascinating.  This afternoon we visit Kedleston Hall which is the seat of the Curzon family and has been owned by the family since the early 12th century, a neo-classical mansion framed by historic parkland..  Kedleston is one of the last great houses built in Derbyshire and remains one of the finest examples of its time, designed for lavish entertaining and displays an extensive collection of paintings, sculptures and original furnishings and is a stunning example of the work of architect Robert Adam and is now owned by the National Trust.  The Hall was used as a key location for the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Duchess’ starring Keira Knightley.
