This morning, our coach transfers us to Rowsley and we hop aboard the Peak Rail Heritage Railway. The line follows the River Derwent and passes through the spectacular Matlock Dale.

Later, our coach takes us to Froghall Station where we’ll join the Churnet Valley Railway. This heritage railway runs along a section of the Churnet Valley Line of the former North Staffordshire Railway, offering a glimpse into the golden age of railway travel as it travels through stunning countryside. We'll enjoy a roundtrip journey from Froghall, before returning to our hotel for our evening meal.

In the morning, we will be transferred by coach to Wirksworth Station, where we will board the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. This railway was a former terminus of the Midland Railway, which was reopened in 2002, and offers a beautiful round-trip train journey through the stunning scenery of the Peak District.

Afterwards, we travel by coach to Chatsworth House and Gardens. With included entry to both the house and gardens, enjoy time to explore in a way that suits you. Home to the Dukes of Devonshire for many generations, the land was purchased by Elizabeth and William Cavendish in 1549 for £600. This was the Home of Elizabeth, Countess of Shrewsbury, better known as Bess of Hardwick. During her lifetime, she married four times and rose to a position of great power and wealth. In 1547, she married William Cavendish, Treasurer of the King’s Chamber – they had eight children and made Chatsworth their home. A later marriage in 1567 to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, saw Bess become Countess of Shrewsbury. Over the following generations, the house was transformed into what we see today.

Later, our coach returns us to our hotel for dinner this evening.
