The Quorn Hunt was founded in 1696 and takes its name from the Leicestershire village of Quorn* where the hounds were kenneled from 1753 until 1904. The Quorn Hunt is one of the best known hunts in England and extends a warm welcome to many visitors from both the UK and internationally. The Quorn hunts within the restrictions of the Hunting Act 2004.

* it was originally spelt Quorndon, but its name was truncated in 1889 to avoid confusion with the Derbyshire village of Quarndon which is near Kedleston Hall
