Visit Matlock and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Matlock, Derbyshire. It was the discovery in 1698 of warm thermal springs which gave importance to the small villages of Matlock Town, Matlock Bridge, Matlock Green and Matlock Bank. Matlock Bath therefore received the instant patronage of the wealthy until the late 18th century. The ordinary tourists started to arrive in the 1840`s when the railway connected with Matlock. Thereafter Matlock became rather commercial especially in the hydrotherapy industry. The largest hydro was built in 1853 by John Smedley and closed in the 1950s.

In 1893, Matlock Cable Tramway, a cable tramway was built, passing by Smedley's hydro to Wellington St. It closed in 1927 after losing business to other forms of transport.

In the last 30 years have been a lot of developments in Matlock Bath: wider Roads, more souvenir shops, amusement arcades, cafes and other food outlets, and car and coach parks.

Today there is much of interest for the tourist:

  • High Tor: a formidable-looking limestone cliff rising from the river Derwent`s eastern bank is popular for climbing. Those not climbing cab wait behind and enjoy refreshments, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks, 2 caves that used to be lead mines, the tourist information centre and the Peak District Mining Museum.
  • The Heights of Abraham: in the late 1700s the slope was developed for visitors to ‘take the waters’ away from lead mining. Today they offer a superb view, Victorian Prospect Tower dating from 1844, 2 show caves, nature trail, Rutland Cavern and the Great Masson Cavern, landscaped gardens, a coffee shop, licensed restaurant, picnic area, and children’s play area.
  • Model railway: a reconstruction of the Midland Railways Company tracks through the most scenic parts of the Peak District. Here also is Gulliver’s Kingdom, a theme park for the entertainment of whole families with over 50 rides and activities.
  • The aquarium: occupies what was formerly Matlock Bath Hydro and now is home to many different types of carp and native, tropical and marine fish.
  • The cable car: travels from Matlock Bath railway station to the top of the Heights of Abraham.
  • Matlock Bath Illuminations and Venetian Nights: features the decorated and illuminated boats of the Matlock Bath Venetian Boat Builders Association an annual which has taken place since the Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
  • Life in a Lens, Matlock Bath: presenting the history of popular photography from its invention in 1839 to more recent times.
