Once famed for its hydros and spa treatments, Matlock is now a bustling tourist destination set in the gorge of the river Derwent. This pretty village is a delight to wander around with its attractive riverside gardens, Victorian buildings, wooded hillsides and rocky limestone crags. Just down the river from the main town lies Matlock Bath which was developed in the Victorian era after the discovery of thermal springs. The town soon became a fashionable resort for the wealthy, however with the coming of the railways it was soon more accessible to day trippers from further afield.
Today, the modern town is split into two, with the original Victorian villas set in tidy rows going up the hill from the river overlooking the amusement arcades of Matlock Bath. The charismatic town has a full range of shops and facilities and it houses the Lead Mining Museum, a cable railway and even a theme park!
The hillsides around afford some superb viewpoints and beautiful countryside is literally on the doorstep. It is also surrounded by the likes of Holloway and Middleton by Wirksworth, not to mention Snitterton and Woolley Moor.
