Fodor's Review

A cable-car ride across the River Derwent takes you to this country park on the crags above the small village of Matlock Bath. The ticket includes access to the woodland walks and nature trails of the 60-acre park, guided tours of two caverns and a former lead mine where workers toiled by candlelight, and entry to a local fossils exhibition. There are also two adventure playgrounds and a restaurant.
