Hidden Treasures of Derbyshire

HIDDEN TREASURES OF DERBYSHIRE

 

We are delighted to introduce this tour for 2020, it has an interesting selection of attractions and the highlight being a visit to the National Brewery Centre in Burton on Trent.  We also feature a stately home and a preserved railway and a National Trust property with a difference.

 

HALLMARK MICKLEOVER COURT HOTEL, Derby

The hotel is just a short drive from Derby and close to the Peak District and offers stylish and contemporary accommodation.  Facilities include a bar, restaurant, indoor pool, gym, sauna, s team room, spa bath and whirlpool.  Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and offer TV, telephone, hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities, the hotel also has a lift.

 

DAY ONE:

Departing from your own front door, join your coach and travel to Derbyshire with comfort stops enroute.  Arriving at your hotel mid-afternoon, tea/coffee & biscuits will be served whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO:

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast before we depart for Burton-on-Trent where we will enjoy a ‘Full Flagon Tour’ with a knowledgeable guide.  The tour takes us around the historic museum as we celebrate the history, art and fun of brewing through an interactive experience culminating in a tasting session in the elegant Brewery Tap Bar where you can sample some of the award-winning ales brewed on site – a not to be missed attraction.

 

DAY THREE:

This morning we make our way north t o the Derwent Valley and Duffield, here we join the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway for a journey through picturesque countryside to Wirksworth.  Rejoining the coach we then continue to Matlock, a delightful Peak District town where you will have chance to obtain lunch.  Our afternoon visit is to Kedleston Hall, a 1760’s mansion designed as a show palace with lavish décor, paintings, furniture and sculptures.  Set in 820-acres of beautiful parkland, ideal for a relaxing stroll before ending your visit at either the café or shop.

 

DAY FOUR:

Our first visit today is to Calke Abbey in Derbyshire which is in the care of the National Trust.  Calke has been left in a state of disrepair and negligence with little restoration and tells the story of the dramatic decline of a grand country house estate with peeling paintwork, overgrown courtyards and many abandoned areas vividly portraying a period of the 20th century when numerous country estates did not survive.  Outside there are beautiful yet faded walled gardens, orangery and kitchen gardens to explore.  From here we finish our excursion with a look at nearby Melbourne Hall Garden – the city of Melbourne in Australia takes its name from here.

 

DAY FIVE:

After our final breakfast we depart our hotel and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
