Nestling beneath limestone cliffs with the River Derwent flowing below, in a beautiful wooded valley, Matlock Bath has been a tourist attraction since visitors came to bathe in the thermal waters. It's beautiful scenery was compared to that of Switzerland and, together with the thermal qualities of the water, added to the attraction of the area.

For those interested, Matlock Bath celebrates a Venetian Festival during the weekends of September and October with illuminated boats cruising up and down the River Derwent. This can be seen for those not wishing to rush away on the Sunday night – or join a few of us on the Saturday night and make it a wonderful weekend!

Rumours abound about this inland seaside resort of famous visitors hiding away their life’s valuables – not least of which, Richard Arkwright, Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and Queen Victoria. Will you be the first to deal your own Royal Flush and get the booty?
