Kedleston Hall

This stunning 18th-century mansion once the home of Lord Curzon (Viceroy of India from 1899-1905) is now a National Trust Property.

The Eastern Museum within Kedleston Hall houses a diverse collection of objects from the Indian Sub-continent, mainland Asia, and Japan. These items were acquired by Lord Curzon who developed a passionate interest in the East through travelling abroad in his youth and during his time as Viceroy of India.

Sikh objects include a War quoit (chakram form the Punjab), a pair of steel arm guards believed to be from the Sikh armoury in Lahore and an oval miniature of the Golden Temple at Amritsar.
