Peak District Short Break

4 September @ 09:00 7 September @ 17:00

4 Day Trip to the Peak District

Chatsworth House

£419pp in a twin/double (£70 Single supplement)

Itinerary

DAY 1 – TRAVEL TO YOUR HOTEL


DAY 2 – CHATSWORTH
In the morning, we visit Chatsworth, the family home of the Dukes of Devonshire. Our visit starts with a 90-minute private guided tour that includes the magnificent Painted Hall, regal State Rooms and beautiful Sculpture Gallery. There’s free time to explore the extensive gardens including the historic Cascade, the Victorian rock garden and the maze.


DAY 3 – CRICH TRAMWAY VILLAGE, CROMFORD MILL AND CROMFORD CANAL BOAT TRIP
Step back in time today with a visit to Crich Tramway Village. Trams from the on-site National Tramway
Museum run through the period village and out to the countryside along a mile-long track. Your ticket includes unlimited rides and entry to the museum. In the afternoon, we travel the short distance to Cromford Mills, the centrepiece of the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site. Developed by Richard Arkwright in 1771, Cromford Mill itself was the first water-powered cotton spinning mill and the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. Next we take a two-hour return boat trip on the Cromford Canal with a guided commentary.


DAY 4 – BAKEWELL AND RETURN HOME
After breakfast, we make our way to the market town of Bakewell. The combination of independent shops, cafes, and its location on the River Wye, makes Bakewell a hugely popular destination. It’s also famous for the Bakewell Pudding, the result of a cook misunderstanding a recipe in the 19th century. After some free time, we make our way home.
