Derbyshire is a beautiful county with beautiful hills, mountains, rivers and valleys, in particular the stunning Derwent Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 stretches from the heart of Derby up into Peak Country to Matlock Bath holds many wonders for the visitor. The Derwent Valley streches well beyond this into the Dark Peak, the high gritstone country. The Derwent Valley World Heritage Site is on the edge of the glorious Peak District. Belper sits squarely in the centre of the World Heritage Site.
Belper is at the heart of the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site and is a great base to explore its treasures and those of the Peak District.

Hop on a bus to Cromford and explore the Arkwright Mills, visit the charecterful Scarthin Books, one of the finest independent book retailers in the country or visit Matlock Bath on a Sunday and see the hundreds of motorcyclists that line the promenade and marvel at the high limestone cliffs that made it famous. Get a bus to Bakewell and enjoy one of its famous puddings and a cup of tea in one of the tea shops. Visit Chatsworth House, seat of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire or Haddon Hall, where the bus will drop you just outside its gates.
