We drive north to the quaint town of Wirksworth, one of the oldest towns in the Peak District and one with the greatest character. The town is centred around its marketplace, where markets have been held since Edward I granted the right in 1306, it has many fine old buildings with picturesque alleys and craftsmen's yards. After some free time we join the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway for a journey through the lush countryside, enjoying the fantastic heritage railway and its beautiful surroundings, before arriving at Duffield. From here we travel to the City of Sheffield, arriving late afternoon with plenty of time to relax at the Copthorne Sheffield Hotel before dinner, and our overnight stay.


After a leisurely breakfast, we check-out and depart, heading southwards 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 1920's, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens. Wander the gardens, grounds and countryside surrounding the Hall, enjoy the Halls and their tapestries and beautiful décor and maybe end your visit with a warm drink in the café. As our visit to Haddon Hall & Gardens ends, we re-board our coach and begin the relaxing journey home.
