Newest Review: ... you find there is a wonderful green open space for everyone to enjoy. I love these places you find in a large tourist town. This large open area is fantastic. Up there, there is a cricket pavilion with pitch so I guess there are times you can enjoy watching a game of local cricket although whilst we were there no action was seen. Past the cricket pavilion there is a lovely treed walk way ... more

Whilst camping in the Peak District we visited the town of Bakewell on two occasions and found it was a very pleasant town full of beautiful shops and holds a big gem in form of the museum 'The old house museum'. We had a lovely time here in what was a very touristy town. Arrival Arriving into the town you notice it is a very popular place and I would warn depending on the time you arrive you can expect to queue if you are in a car. The great thing about this town is it recognises how popular it is and it shows in the amount of car parks available. There are several large car parks available and they cost about four pound for four ... Read the complete review

Bakewell is a pretty little market town in Derbyshire, a nice little tourist destination diverting enough for a day out regardless of your age. I live in Sheffield so Bakewell is not too far a trek for a good day out. Although you can technically get there by bus, don't even think about it on a Monday morning, you could queue for hours! Driving is fairly easy as it's well signposted form both Sheffield and Chesterfield and once you enter the town, the car parks are easy to find. If you visit on Market day (Monday), I'd recommend driving through the town following the signs for Matlock and you'll find that the field in the agricultural centre has been opened up ...

Bakewell - Easy to Reach, Hard to Leave! Where Is It? - Follow the A6 to the north of Matlock. The A6 runs right through the centre of Bakewell, with car parking clearly sign posted to the south of the town centre. If you are using satellite navigation then try using postcode DE45 1AH - this should take you straight to the main pay & display car park to the south of the town, which is in easy walking distance from the main shops. Where can I Park? - There are two main car parks, one is summarised above and is situated to the south of the town. The other is to the south-east / east. Both are quite clearly sign posted although I would ... Read the complete review

A couple of weekends ago, we spent a lovely Saturday in the Derbyshire town of Bakewell. This is only about thirty minutes from where I live so it was conveniently located for a day out that didn't require us to travel too far to get there and back. We arrived around lunchtime and had trouble finding a car park spot that was anywhere near the exit as lots of other people had had the same idea of spending the day in the sunshine there! Fortunately, there are several large car parks so finding a spot in general shouldn't be a problem. Once we eventually parked the car, it was only a short walk down one of the quite quaint streets to get to the main ... Read the complete review
