With so much to see and do in Derbyshire, there is sure to be something everyone will love.
The Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay. At this point it joins up with the High Peak Trail, which runs from High Peak Junction to Dowlow near to Buxton. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists, naturalists and walkers.
The historic market town of Ashbourne, lies in an attractive valley divided by the Henmore Brook and is frequently referred to as the ‘Gateway to Dovedale’. But it is much more than that with its many fine buildings, good shopping facilities and attractive layout. Most of which has been protected since 1968, by Conservation Area status.
Visitors flock to Bakewell in the summer, to shop and explore its many nooks and crannies, admire its fine buildings, or just relax and feed the ducks by the lovely, clear, sparkling waters of the River Wye.
Visitors arriving in Buxton for the first time from the bleak moorlands cannot be blamed for pinching themselves in some disbelief as they emerge into a town with fine parks and grand old buildings.
From countryside cycle routes like The Tissington Trail to action packed thrill seeking adventure at Alton Towers, The Peak District has something for everyone.
