Often considered the centre for exploring the Peak District National Park, Bakewell has a long and varied history. On this tour we will see everything from ancient coffins and crosses to medieval manor houses, find out what Jane Austen called the town and discover exactly where the original "Bakewell Pudding" was made! Join me to explore this fascinating market town on the fast flowing River Wye, surrounded by wooded hills and meadows.

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
