Bakewell

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without a trip to Bakewell to enjoy the delights of this beautiful, old market town – and of course sample the famous Bakewell Pudding at its birthplace!

Set in the very heart of the Peak District and right by the river Wye, Bakewell is known far and wide for it’s weekly Monday markets of both foodstuffs and livestock – perfect for the thriving community of farmers like us! Despite being a town of vast historical value, Bakewell has something to suit people from every walk of life, with its selection of shopping arcades, restaurants and coffee shops; along with the recently revamped town centre.

The Bakewell Bridge is another iconic sight for everyone to enjoy – originally built in the 1300s, surviving the medieval character of Bakewell up until the 19th century – and since widened to make a simply stunning historical landmark above the river, home to an abundance of nature – including ducks and geese.
