Derbyshire

Derbyshire is one of the UK’s most picturesque counties, with gracefully scooped-out valleys, ragged and worn peaks and furrowed with meandering rivers. In amongst the woods and the undulating countryside, you’ll find bustling market towns, peaceful villages and historic sites. Derbyshire is located in the East Midlands and is bordered by Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. It owes much of its beauty to the Peak District National Park, which extends into Cheshire and Yorkshire.

Underground, Overground

If you’re visiting as a family, you’ll find there’s plenty to keep the younger members of your party engaged and entertained. For an unsurpassed view of the countryside, be sure to visit The Heights of Abraham – a Victorian cable car that will take you right across the Derwent Valley. However, if you’d rather not be above the ground, you can take peek under it, with a visit to the spellbinding Poole’s Cavern in Buxton.

Dining Out in Derbyshire

Derbyshire has nailed its culinary colours firmly to the mast and has become something of a Mecca for those who enjoy fine, locally-sourced cuisine. A romantic getaway ought to include a visit to the Mansion Restaurant in Derby, while families or groups of friends may well enjoy the rustic charms of The Dragon at Willington or the vibrancy of the Jack Rabbit Café.

Shopping in Derbyshire

For those who want to exercise their shopping muscles, a visit to the Peak Shopping Village is in order. There, you’ll find designer shops rubbing shoulders with smaller, boutique-style stores. Alternatively, the Georgian town of Ashbourne offers a twice-weekly market in which you can buy local produce and hand-crafted goods.
