After collection from home, travel north stopping in Stamford to take a break for lunch, before continue to the 4 star Hallmark Mickleover Court Hotel for the three night stay including dinner, bed and breakfast, to be greeted with tea, coffee and biscuits.


Day 2

After breakfast, the first visit is Ashbourne, a fine old market town with a wealth of high quality shops. This afternoon, head for Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood. These are two totally different experiences sitting side by side. The Hall is a county home and a delight of 17th Century craftsmanship and The Museum of Childhood is a joy for all ages.

Day 3

Begin the day with a drive to Derbyshire and the village of Crich to visit the superb National Tramway Museum. The authentic village scene transports you back in time with cobbled streets and the gentle rumble of passing trams. Tramway Street hosts many period features such as shops, ice cream parlour, tea rooms and more. Catch a lovingly restored tram for a ride down the street and out into the Derbyshire countryside - the ticket includes unlimited rides. Later continue to the market town of Bakewell, famous for the Bakewell Tart.
