“The palace of the Peaks”

Tour Highlights: Chatsworth House, interior to include state apartments, extensive parklands and estate the glorious Peak District, Hardwick Hall interior and beautiful gardens.

We leave London early and take a traditional English breakfast in the beautiful market town of Bakewell before we make our way onto the magnificent residence of the Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth House. The current property dates from the 17th Century and has the reputation as the grandest country house in England. We tour the lavish interiors at our leisure then view the splendid gardens, set in the most glorious countryside.

Lunch is taken at one of the Peak District’s rustic inns and then we journey onto one of the most well preserved Tudor mansions, Hardwick Hall, home to the fabulously wealthy Bess of Hardwick. The house is an enduring monument to her success and self belief. The interior is sumptuously decorated and the garden equally impressive.

We take a last glimpse of the breathtaking Peak District, before we travel back to London.
