We tour one of the most beautiful and popular tourist destinations in Britain, The Peak District National Park. The Park contains spectacular scenery, wonderful wildlife and historic sites and our all inclusive programme takes us to many of the fascinating local attractions. We visit Chatsworth House, home to the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire, where we enjoy a tour of this stately home before continuing to Bakewell, famous for the Bakewell Pudding, independent shops, art galleries and quaint tea rooms. We travel to Castleton, a beautiful village in the High Peak district and tour The Blue John Cavern, where the mineral has been mined for centuries and is made into items of jewellery. A short drive takes us to the Derwent Reservoir and Dam, used by the Lancaster bomber pilots as target practice before the attacks on the great dams of Germany. We enjoy a leisurely boat trip on the Cromford Canal and step back in time along the streets of Crich Tramway Village. This is one of Derbyshire’s award-winning attractions with the possibility to enjoy unlimited tram rides in the recreated period village. We visit Buxton, a spa town boasting the highest elevation of any market town in England and known as the festival town and cultural capital of The Peak District and Leek, the Queen of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Clustered around a stone-cobbled market square, its well preserved architecture and historic links with the Napoleonic Wars and the Arts and Crafts movement, make it is a popular destination.
We return to Scotland after a relaxing Derbyshire holiday.
