We depart for the picturesque village of Castleton before a scenic drive over the Snake Pass passing Ladybower Reservoir which gained fame as it was used by the RAF to practise for the Dam Buster’s raids.
We travel to Bakewell and visit the Original Bakewell Pudding shop. It is said that in about 1860 a cook at a local hotel was making a jam tart, but instead of stiring the eggs and almond paste mixture into the pastry he spread it on top of the jam, the rest is history. We then take the short journey to Chatsworth House on the River Derwent and visit the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Chatsworth is one of Britain’s most impressive stately homes. It has beautifully landscaped gardens designed by Capability Brown.
Today we travel to Matlock Bath and the Crich Tramway Museum. Matlock Bath became an instant tourist resort for the wealthy when warm springs were discovered back in 1698. We continue to the Crich Tramway museum nestling high up in the heart of Derbyshire overlooking the famous Derwent Valley. Here you will find a lovingly restored period village that is also home to the National Tramway Museum and its world renowned archives.
