Bakewell is proud of it’s listed buildings and between the picturesque town, setting and ubiquitous tarts, sees a lot of tourist activity in the area, making this a thriving community attracting the outward bound and the countryside enthusiasts.
Bakewell has a long and storied history that goes beyond it’s roots as a centre of regional trade and patisserie.

There is a lot hiding beneath the surface of this town’s more obvious attractions, indeed it’s roots run deep into the quintessentially picturesque surroundings with plenty to discover and delight.
