Attractions

Buckingham's is located in Derbyshire, where there is a wealth of interesting places to visit, from sites of English heritage, to picturesque villages or dramatic landscapes...

The Peak District National Park is about 5 miles away, and a drive out to the Peak Park is just essential on a break here at Buckingham's! If you don't have a car, there are reliable bus services, just ask for details.

Here are some places which we think are unmissable:

Said to have 'more glass than wall', the Hall was built by Elizabeth Countess of Shrewsbury and completed in 1597. Elizabeth, known locally as 'Bess of Hardwick, was the richest woman in the country after Queen Elizabeth I. Hardwick is one of the greatest Elizabethan houses and survivies almost unchanged today. The Hall contains one of Europe's best collections of 16th and 17th Century embroideries and tapestries.

William the Conqueror's illegitimate son, Peverel, and his descendants held Haddon for a hundred years before it passed into the hands of the Vernons. It was under their care and particularly under that of Richard de Vernon in the 14th century and Sir Henry Vernon in the 16th century that Haddon Hall took on the shape of the building we are familiar with today. It came into the possession of the Manners family by marriage after the death of Sir George Vernon in 1567 and has remained in the Manners family ever since

St Mary and All Saints or the 'Crooked Spire' Church, was dedicated in the 13th century and finished around 1360. It is the largest church in Derbyshire. The Spire stands 228 feet from the ground and 'leans' 9 feet 5 inches from its true centre. The Spire was 'twisted' when unseasoned wood was used during its construction. Lead tiles were placed on top and as the timber dried out the weight of the lead twisted the spire.St Mary and All Saints or the 'Crooked Spire' Church, was dedicated in the 13th century and finished around 1360.
