Scenic Drive

A scenic journey to the northern tip of the Peak District National Park, travelling over Snake Pass, with stunning, elevated scenic vista to Ladybower Reservoir, where the Dambusters trained during WWII. Further on is Derwent Reservoir, with the ruins of Derwent Village hidden beneath its waters. When the water is low, the eerie sounds of the church bells can be heard ringing. On to Eyam, the plague town from 1665, with its museum and then Castleton, home of the legendary Blue John Caverns, beloved by the Queen.


A morning visit to the city of Derby, situated on the River Derwent, boasting excellent shopping, many museums and historic buildings. After lunch, our coach will take you to the eastern side of the Peak District. What better way to see the scenery than gliding past on a steam train? A nostalgic twenty-five-minute journey sweeping through the Derbyshire countryside between Rowsley and Matlock. Enjoy free time in Matlock Bath, nestling alongside the River Derwent, in a beautiful gorge, with a number of attractions, walks, shops and cafés.

Chatsworth House

Enter the Peak District for the final time to visit Bakewell, home of the original Bakewell Pudding shop. After some free time, visit the stunning Chatsworth House and Gardens, reported as one of England’s finest stately homes. Explore the house with its unique treasures, wander the 105 acres of gardens set against a back drop of the Peak District countryside. Return to the hotel via Ashbourne, where there will also be free time.
