Nestled in the rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, the market town of Wirksworth is rightly described as the gem of the Peak. Its architectural heritage is as varied as its vibrant arts scene, meaning the town offers something for everyone. From independent eateries, shops, and a stylish art house cinema, there is so much to explore on your doorstep. Surrounded by a vast network of footpaths and quiet cycling lanes Wirksworth also boasts nearby popular destination Carsington Water. With its excellent visitor centre, walking and cycling routes around the lake and great opportunities for water sports, it makes for a fabulous day out. Another of the town’s unique attractions is the National Stone Centre, which offers activities such as gem-panning and fossil-casting. There is even a traditional steam railway, complete with Victorian station cafe. Bakewell, Ashbourne, Dovedale, Matlock Bath (home to Gullivers Kingdom Theme Park), Chatsworth, and Haddon Hall are all a short drive away.
