Derbyshire is an immensely diverse county with a fantastic range of activities and facilities for every family. From Glossop to Swadlincote, there is always somewhere to find fabulous entertainment for children of all ages. Derbyshire is home to the Chatsworth Estate, providing breathtaking views and a full day's worth of activities for the children, while Matlock Bath offers something for the thrill seekers with Gulliver's Kingdom theme park and Heights of Abraham (featuring a former mine and cliff-top cafe).
Derbyshire stretches over 555 square miles and draws in visitors from its many neighbouring counties, such as Greater Manchester and Staffordshire. It has a fantastic public transport network, making it easy to get around for those wishing to travel without a car.
A substantial proportion of the Peak District National Park lies at the north of the county and this area of natural beauty is protected and untouched. The vast open spaces offer plenty of walks and outdoor pursuits, many of which are to be found near picturesque Victorian towns where you can stop for a well-earned rest and a famous Bakewell Pudding. No wonder it's the second most visited national park in the world!
The county has plenty of opportunities to meet new people and do something different every day, so use Mumsnet Derbyshire to help you plan your next adventure.
