Day 1

Following departure from a local pick up point across East Anglia, travel north to Sheffield and the Copthorne Hotel for the two night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.


Day 2

Discover the quaint town of Wirksworth with its variety of cafes, cosy pubs and independent stores, as well as the fine St Mary's church before joining the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway for a journey through the lush countryside, enjoying the fantastic heritage railway and its beautiful surroundings before arriving at Duffield.
Later, head into the Peak District to visit Bakewell, 'home of the tart', for a short break, perhaps with a slice of Bakewell Tart from the Original Pudding Shop.

B, D

Day 3

Head south to Haddon Hall, probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence. Present-day Haddon Hall dates from the 12th Century and was brought back to its former glory in the 1920s, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens. Wander the gardens, grounds and countryside surrounding the Hall, enjoy the tapestries and beautiful décor inside and maybe end the visit with a warm drink in the café before travelling back to the local drop off points across East Anglia.
