Glossop (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... was a mill town - nowadays it's a sizeable market town, popular with commuters due to the easy half-hour train journey to Manchester. Surrounded by hills, virtually every house has 'stunning views' (an estate agent's delight!) and you can get out into beautiful countryside really quickly. There are loads of lovely local walks - it's possible to explore a lot of the Dark Peak including Kinder Scout without going very far afield at all. In fact, Glossop would make a great base for a walking holiday. The town itself is an interesting place for a day out - there are some familiar 'High Street' names like Boots and Costa Coffee, and there... more

So, where is Glossop? Well, it nestles in a valley on the edge of the Peak District. It's technically in Derbyshire, though it's right on the very edge, miles and miles away from Derby.

Before I start I better say that I am writing from a slightly biased opinion because Glossop is the place I have felt most at home at (Iv'e moved a round a bit) I think that Glossop is a great town with lots of good things. Firstly its right near the peak district, lots of beutiful countryside. Its also near Manchester city center (approx half an hours train/car journey) so lots of shopping, jobs, entertainment,pubs,clubs etc. Glossop also has the highest ratio of pubs to people in England so you are spoilt for choice on that front! If you are in the area its definately worth a visit. Here are some places I would recomend. The George hotel (opposite the train ... Read the complete review
