Placed in the East Midlands of England, the historic, administrative and geographic county of Derbyshire is home to Britain’s first National Park, Peak District. The county town is Matlock, and one can reach the county via a 3— 4-hour journey on road or a flight into the East Midlands Airport. The first settlements in the region trace back to Middle Paleolithic Age. Limestone caves of Upper Paleolithic and Neolithic periods placed on Nottinghamshire border give evidence of human settlements tracing back to 12,000 BCE. The Roman invaders sought the limestone hills and lead ore in the county and erected forts in Hope Valley and Brough. Many Mercian kings were laid to rest in Repton, and the county fell under the forest laws following the Norman Conquest.

There’s so much to see and do in Derbyshire! Creswell Crags offers insight into the ice age dwellers who hunted mammoths, cave hyenas and more fearsome beasts. Step just outside the village of Creswell, and you’ll get the chance to see the fantastic tools and fossils of our ancient ancestors. Do take in the stunning views from The Heights of Abraham on your trip to Peak District. From there take a ride on the winding Winnats Pass. The Pavilion Gardens stretches over 23 acres and is a great place to stroll through the many farmer’s markets, fairs and events held annually. Step inside the East Midland’s Designer Outlet for a spot of retail therapy.
