The market town of Bakewell has a fascinating history, being mentioned in The Doomsday Book in 1085. You can choose to walk along the riverside on the banks of the river Wye, or wander around the cobbled streets lined with just about every shop you would wish to see. Exclusive clothing and coffee shops…don’t miss out on a genuine Bakewell pudding, something for the home, it’s all waiting to be discovered.

A good day to visit is Monday when there is a bustling market held in the town square…..get there early!
