Parking is easy with many car park areas available with overflow car parks also at the ready. We wouldn’t advise walking up any of the big hills in the rain! You may end up face planting the floor.

At Number two

Carsington Water

Many visitors simply use Carsington as a meet up place for a BBQ & pick nick zone with family & friends

In at number Three

Black Rock

BlackRock – The Black Rocks is a small outcrop of natural gritstone, between Cromford and Wirksworth in the Derbyshire Peak District, England. Parking is available for a small fee. Some choice not to use the car park and opt for the side of the road before the entrance.

Just be careful if you venture up the main big “Rock” don’t go near the edge as the drops one that you won’t come back from “safety first”. We also don’t recommend the big hill route on wet days, the gravel path can sometimes move underneath your feet, causing tumbles.

Great for picnics as there are lots of seating areas & also a café.

History of Matlock Bath Illuminations

The Matlock Bath Illuminations have a long established history dating back to 1897 – first held to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It was the recollections of an earlier visit to Matlock Bath, by the then Princess Victoria that inspired the Illuminations. She recalled how, when staying in Matlock Bath, she looked out of her hotel window and saw the candle lights were reflected in the River Derwent that flows through the centre of the village. The twinkling lights made a lasting impression on the young Princess.
