5 Days - Small Group Tours

Experience the best of the Peak District, embracing the history, heritage and scenery that make up the heart of Derbyshire. From a base of the historic spa town of Buxton, we visit iconic stately homes, take nostalgic rail journeys and walk with nature, as well as heading to charming Bakewell, Matlock Bath and Dovedale. Home to the Bakewell tart, stunning spa towns and arguably the most impressive stately home in England, our fascinating tour highlights what makes the Peak District such a special place to visit. Brimming with beautiful Recency, Georgian and Victorian architecture, the tour is based in the historic spa town of Buxton. From here, you’ll experience the likes of Chatsworth House and its splendid gardens, before heading to the characterful town of Bakewell. We’ll also experience the Peaks from a variety of angles, whether a walk on the Dovedale stepping stones, a wander around historic Ilam park, up high on the Heights of Abraham cable car or by train on the beautifully restored Peak Railway.
