Having come back from Scotland, we decided to get in this place and we're not disappointed by it. Had a good time and would definitely recommend it. The limited staff available were nice and friendly with good local knowledge.

Visited the recently refurbished museum. Work is ongoing and the museum opens officially in September. The Wonders of the Peak exhibition is excellent, with some interesting displays, and more in course (the display of Ashford Black Marble will be a superb addition when complete). No...More
