This region encapsulates everything everybody loves about England.

There are rolling hills so green that you wonder whether there’s something unusual in the soil, there are rural towns with more quaint cottages than you can count, and caves with tales of robbers and witches.

On this tour, you explore the most fascinating spots in the area of Derbyshire.

You see the gently towering hillocks of the Peak District, experience the traditional streets and treats of Bakewell village, and journey into the natural wonder of Peak’s Cavern.

Join this tour and experience England in miniature.

Itinerary

Manchester

It’s time to leave the big city behind and travel to the Peak District; the region of wild peaks, rugged moorlands, and pretty time-worn cottages.

 

Eyam & Bakewell

Your first stop is in Eyam, a village that faced unimaginable adversity when the plague broke out here in 1666. Moved by the story of solidarity and strength, you travel onwards to Bakewell.

Not only is this town delicious to look at, but it’s also the home of one of England’s most famous desserts, the Bakewell Pudding.

Castleton

With life feeling a bit sweeter now, you venture to Monsal Head. There’s an old rail line viaduct that emerges from green hills to create a unique vista. It’s a gorgeous structure with an impressive history.

We’ve got another treat for you, a stop in Castleton. This quaint old town attracts travellers from all over the world for its traditional English charm. You can wander the streets, enjoy a beautiful view up a valley, and learn its history at an insightful information centre. You will also have a chance to go on an optional visit to the Peak’s Cavern. This cave has an outrageous nickname, the largest natural entrance, used to be a hideout for robbers and now it sometimes acts as a concert venue.

Manchester

After a day of delicious treats, spectacular views, and poignant history, you travel back to Manchester and arrive in the late afternoon.
