Town and city breaks in Derbyshire
During your stay in our hotel in Derbyshire, visiting the city of Derby is an absolute must. It is at the cutting edge of British culture, a vibrant, trendy and cosmopolitan place with plenty of things to do and see. If you're a keen shopper, there is a multitude of shops and boutiques littered through the centre. If you prefer a more contained environment, Westfield Derby has been rated as the 'Top Shopping Destination in the East Midlands 2012' for its stunning architecture, breadth of choice and a fantastic and varied food court. If you're a keen foodie and enjoy a nice drink, Derby certainly warrants a visit. The city serves a wide range of cuisine and also hosts the CAMRA Beer Festival twice a year as well as several independent beer festivals. All year round, microbreweries and atmospheric English pubs offer an interesting selection of local beers - the perfect day trip from your Derbyshire hotel.
Holidays in the Derbyshire countryside
Home to the Peak District, bordering the counties of Cheshire, South and West Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire and home to a number of beautiful, tranquil little towns, there are plenty of day-trip options when booking your Best Western hotel in Derbyshire. The beautiful county is divided up into several areas, the largest of which is named Derbyshire Dales. Bolsover in the East, Chesterfield, Amber Valley and of course the High Peak District are all worth a visit. Nicknamed the 'Backbone of England,' the stunning Peak District reaches 636m above sea level and stands over the Peak District National Park, thought to be the second most-visited national park in the world (after Mount Fiji National Park in Japan). The rugged, wild moors of the Derbyshire lowlands will satisfy the keenest sightseers and ramblers; the sparkling waters of its famous reservoirs are enough to send a shiver down anyone's spine.
Attractions in Derbyshire
Derbyshire is full of magnificent country houses, which is not surprising considering its proximity to the Victorian powerhouses of Manchester and Sheffield - the industrial moguls of the nineteenth-century needed a place to retire on weekends! From your Derbyshire hotel, plan a visit to Buxton, nicknamed 'the Gateway to the Peak District National Park,' a truly remarkable place. This famous settlement is the highest market town in England. A trip here will result in a day of relaxation, with its heated spas and famous Opera House. Setting aside the breath-taking views, Buxton also has its share of excitement with Poole's Cavern, an extensive limestone network of caves around two million years old. Book a Best Western hotel in Derbyshire for a wonderful short UK break. This beautiful scenic county will keep you coming back for more and more.
