Journey on the Ecclesbourne Railway

Admission to Haddon Hall

Day 1 Saturday

Travel north for our included railway journey from Wirksworth in Derbyshire, where there will also be some free time. This delightful town offers a variety of cosy pubs, bistros, cafes and traditional shops.
The town is full of odd nooks and crannies and the ancient church of St Mary nestles in its small cathedrallike precinct a short walk from the station. Later in the afternoon we continue to the Copthorne Hotel for dinner, bed & breakfast.

D

Day 2 Sunday

Included visit to Haddon Hall, probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence. Present-day Haddon Hall dates from the 12th century and was brought back to its former glory in the 1920s, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens. Wander the gardens, grounds and countryside. Explore the interior and maybe end your visit in the café. Drive home in the afternoon

B

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

One of Derbyshire’s most lovely and unspoilt valleys, stretching from the outskirts of Derby to Wirksworth, an ancient market town known as the Gem of the Peak. Enjoy another Heritage Railway on this tour. Mainly using diesel railcars with, on selected days, steam hauled services. In contrast a splendid medieval fortified manor house, Haddon Hall, restored by the 9th Duke & Duchess of Rutland. Two very different attractions for a memorable two days.
