Our Matlock Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Matlock

The picturesque town of Matlock is a popular destination on the outskirts of the Peak District.

You may wish to discover the amazing views of the National Park from the Heights of Abraham cable car ride, which will also take you to some of the spectacular underground caves. Another way to experience the beauty of Matlock is to take a walk or rowing boat along the River Derwent.

The area is perhaps most well known for being home to Gulliver’s Kingdom, a family fun theme park containing rides and attractions for all thrill seekers to enjoy.  However, if you wish to be transported into a different era entirely, the Crich Tramway Village is the place for you. Enjoy a tram ride or roam about the converted periodic streets, passing all the unique shops and pubs which lead to the National Tramway Museum.
