We’ll have time to freely wander through quaint courtyards and over the River Wye across the medieval bridge. Or maybe spend your time indulging in a slice of the famous pudding - do you need an excuse?Later, we visit Chatsworth House, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and one of the country’s grandest stately homes. It’s most famous for its magnificent art collection, displayed within the ornately decorated rooms, and the extensive gardens designed by Capability Brown - an excellent place for a stroll.

Then wander through the walled kitchen gardens and the Orangery for a glimpse into their outdoor life.On our Peak District breaks you'll also get some free time.

We step back in time today on a visit to the wonderful Crich Tramway Village. Walk along recreated early 20th-century streets, lined with reconstructed period buildings. Ride the lovingly restored trams or call in at the tearooms, old-fashioned sweet shop or Edwardian pub. The exhibition takes you through a hundred years of tramway development, from 1860-1960, with trams powered by horse, steam and electricity.Continuing with a theme of vintage transportation, we also enjoy a return steam (or diesel) train journey on the restored Peak Railway. This nostalgic four-mile track between Rowsley South and Matlock is a reopened section of the former Midland Railway, which extended from London to Manchester until 1968.
