TRAINS & TRAMS OF THE PEAKS

Premier Class Tour

Derbyshire is a county of unique characteristics. It is home to the breathtaking Peak District National Park located the southernmost end of the Pennines. We enjoy a range of excursions that reflect the nostalgia in and around this truly unspoilt area of Britain. 

The Hallmark Mickleover Court is a four star standard hotel located on the outskirts of Derby. You can be sure of receiving a warm welcome and great service. All rooms have excellent facilities. It has a lift, indoor pool and sauna.
