Any ideas as to where we could combine the meal and entertainment. If not happy to do separately.
All comments welcome
For the above, what would you suggest, starting out point and finishing etc ( Rail accessible points ) leaving from Rochdale. With average to good cycling proficiency, would like to follow an interesting, scenic route, with overnight stays at budget/B & B accomodation suitable for cyclists.
I am going to Manchester in June and plan to go to either Lake or Peak District or both if time permits. The trip to either location is going to be a short trip (3 - 4 hours) and the purpose of this trip is just a sightseeing.
Having said that, can u suggest where is the best location in Lake / Peak District should I go to ?
Another thing - if I just have time for 1 location, which District should I choose ?
Im'm staying there 1 afternoon and 2 nights and I'm looking for castels, parks, pubs, places to go by night.. (please no links)
not farer than 1 km from the centre of derby, because I have to go by foot!
thank you! ciao!
Hi, me and a mate are driving up to hull for the day along the m1 and were looking for a location where one of us could drop off their car (as we dont need both)around the derby, probably around junction 23a of the m1 before the nottingham east midlands airport - any suggestions??
Does anyone know how reliable this bus service is regarding travel time? The schedule says it will take 30 minutes from Derby station to the airport, even at peak-traffic hours in the evening. I have no idea what the traffic situation is like in that area and would therefore be grateful for some advice on the time I'll realistically have to calculate.
I have seen a nice cottage in Grindleford for rent. I was wondering if anyone has had any personal experiences of Gridleford. Things like pubs, transport good places to eat and some good walks etc.
Planning a mid-March trip to the Peak District, and must choose between 2 equally lovely rentals in Buxton or Matlock. We're flying from the U.S. to Gatwick, so the weekend train ride to Buxton Via Manchester looks to be 6 hours; Matlock looks considerably shorter. We'll be without a car and will use the trains/busses and bike/walk to visit Bakewell, Castleton, Abney. What are the pros & cons of each town. I know Buxton is a gem and a much larger place. Does it lose its charm by being larger? I'd love to hear some opinions as I've never been to the area and don't know what to expect. My ideal is a place where we could walk a few minutes to the coutryside, but also to a pub, grocer, and excellent bakery.
Your comments are greatly appreciated!
I am thinking of applying to uni in Derby & i was just wondering what the nightlife was like in terms of clubs and stuff???
I am from Liverpool so used to a wild night out =]
I do not have a car. Is there another way to get to Kedleston Hall on Sundays?
I'm pretty sure this is going to be impossible, but I want to ask someone familiar with the area - one of my favorite musicians is performing in Ashby-de-la-Zouch on Sept 22. Thing is I'm flying back to the States from London on the morning of the 23rd. Will it be possible to catch this concert and catch a train or bus back to London that night so I don't miss my flight?
Like I said, this seems impossible, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Thanks!
I'll be traveling to Derbyshire in October 2007. We hope to not have to rent a car--is this feasible in Derbyshire? We want to visit historic estates and enjoy the local scenery. We're thinking of staying in Matlock Bath or Bakewell (unless we receive other suggestions).
Thanks for your help!
Hi, I am planning to hike in the peak district this weekend but have no idea which bus number that can get me there. If anyone have any information please let me know. I did tried search online but end up with locations like dronfields and buxton?? Please anyone with information to share. Thanks
Peak District - transport & accom help!
My friend and I would like to go away to the Peak District for the Easter weekend coming up (last minute thing).
There are 2 things I need help with..
First is Transport. We don't know if we should catch a train up on the Good Friday 6 April to Manchester, and then hir a car from Manchester and drive to the Peak District (assuming car hire places are open on Good Friday?). Or simply just drive to the Peak District from London. Does anyone know how long it would take to drive straight there? Or should we catch a train to Manchester first? Any thoughts?
Second part its accommodation. I've looked at so many websites, but I still have no idea where to stay (or which town to stay in). Ideally, I'd like to stay in a small country town that is close to some sight seeing destinations. I'm a 'scenic' type of person and would like to visit some old English estates while I'm there and would also like to explore a bit of the country side (walking if weather permitting). My budget is around £30 per person per night and I'm thinking B&B's might be the best option. Could you suggest a nice town? and / or a nice B&B we could stay in? Or any other accommodation options for around the same price?
Any advice / thoughts / guidance would be much appreciated!!!
We are hoping to stay in Derbyshire for a vacation. Question: The bus service from Victoria Station to Chesterfield, Times? Returning times back to London ? Would we be able to take 3 pieces of luggage on the bus?
Wonder if anyone can help....we're heading to Bakewell for the weekend, and need somewhere to eat (well, ideally two places, one for Friday, one for Sat!) that will let us take a well behaved dog in with us.
Any ideas? Central Bakewell preferred (so no-one has to drive!), but we can travel a few miles if necessary.
Thanks in advance.
My sister has just been offered a position at the university of Derby. Could anyone give me any first-hand information on the city and the University? Thanks.
Thanks to everyone who answered my last question, in particular Joe who was super helpful. I just need a little more info. My friend and I who are going to London decided that we will stay in a county closer to London and travel to Derbyshire for a day trip instead of staying there and paying rail into London for 4 days. But, if we stay in like a county that's only like half an hour out of London, can we get a cab into the city? How much is it, I live in a small town so I don't know anything about cabs, much less London cabs. I still need lots more info about transportation. THANKS THANKS THANKS! If all Europeans are as friendly as you guys- I'm twice as excited! PS- Is Europeans politcally correct?
I am having a terrible time finding accurate information about transportation for my trip to London. I don't want to stay in London because it's too expensive. I want to stay in a surrounding county, I chose Derbyshire because of the beautiful pictures I've seen and that it contains many of the sightseeing places I want to go including Lyme Park. However, I can't find how far it is from Derbyshire to London. How far is it? What are the different transportations to get there and how much do they cost? Is there another surrounding county you would recommend?
Can anyone tell me what Buxon in Derbyshire, UK is well known for? Cheers.
