This walking tour of Bakewell lasts about 1hr 15mins and covers half a mile.

Full of fascinating and little known facts (plus some lively legends) our guided walks are informative, interesting and entertaining. From the Anglo-Saxons and Normans to the present day your guide will lead you through the centuries. Beginning at the River Wye and taking you through the streets of Bakewell up to the Old House Museum, your guides will reveal the rich history, heritage, architecture, people and legends of this rural market town. The trail may be barely a half mile, but with so many ancient structures and sites to visit there is a wealth of history crammed into the spine of the town.
