The Surrounding Peak District Area...
Bakewell village, famed for it's Bakewell Pudding, is a great place to visit on a trip to the Peak District. The picturesque village has lots of shops, places to eat, a large park (with paddling pool for the kids), and the market is worth a look when the local farmers barter for a good price for their livestock!
Seasonally, there is the Bakewell Arts Festival, held in August. Also in August, is the Bakewell Show - where, amongst other things, you can shop, buy local food produce, drink homebrewed cider and watch exciting air shows - highly recommended!
The estate of Chatsworth is well known, and for good reason. There is a huge amount to do and see here - from the amazing children's playground and farmyard, to the tours around the grand house and vast gardens themselves, a visit to Chatsworth is a must!
The spa town of Buxton has much to offer the visitor - especially if you are into the Arts. Famous Buxton Opera House always has a great line up of events which will keep you entertained; and if it is Arts you're into, then the Buxton Arts Festival (June) should be right up your street.
Arts aside, there are lots of shops, restaurants and a market. The architechture in Buxton is also quite something, with several buildings displaying Georgian traits, notably, the Pavilion.
