This sightseeing tour is based in Buxton, a gorgeous gem in the Peak District and home to impressive sights such as Solomon’s Temple and the Grade I listed Crescent as well as Poole’s cavern – a two-million-year- old limestone cave. A holiday highlight is our day at historic Chatsworth House, a stunning landmark set in beautiful parkland and home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. We enjoy a scenic journey through the Peak District to the shores of Ladybower Reservoir, made famous by the Dambusters practice missions, then onwards to the tourist hub of Castleton. Our final outing takes us to picture postcard Bakewell, home to classy courtyards and the eponymous tart.
Chatsworth House is an astonishing landmark known as the Palace of the Peaks and boasts a stunning interior adorned with the paintings and artefacts that have shaped its history. View the grand Painted Hall, imperial State Rooms and striking art collections. Outside, the lush gardens feature leafy trails and intriguing sculptures.
High Peak, Ladybower Reservoir & Castleton
Look forward to a scenic drive over Snake Pass, viewing the High Peak as we journey through the heart of the Peak District National Park to Ladybower Reservoir & Derwent Dam – the locations where the WWII Dambusters practised for their missions. From here we continue to the quaint village of Castleton, home to four show caves including Blue John Cavern, an illuminated limestone cave with fossils and bones!
A morning visit to Bakewell, located on the River Wye and home of the eponymous tart and grand old houses. Afternoon is free in Buxton.
