V8 Derbyshire Tour 2018

The next V8 Tour in the popular series will be based in Derbyshire. The event will include touring the beautiful scenic routes around the Derbyshire dales. There will be a tour of the Peak District National Park, visiting both Derbyshire White Peak and Dark Peak.
We hope to visit:

Haddon Hall. Described by Simon Jenkins in "1000 Best Houses" as "the most perfect house to survive from the middle ages". Set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced gardens, and overlooking the River Wye. More

Renishaw Hall and Gardens. Home to The Sitwell Family. Perhaps the most famed of the Sitwells were the literary trio of Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell Sitwell, who played a huge part in the artistic and literary world in the early part of the last century:Dame Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964) was a grandly eccentric
poet and novelist, Sir Osbert Sitwell (1892-1969) wrote prose, poetry and also many short stories and novels and Sir Sacheverell Sitwell (1897-1988) was well known for his work on art, architecture, ballet and travel. More

Crich Tramway Village. Home to the National Tramway Museum, providing a trip back to a bygone age. Vintage trams transport you along the traditional street into open countryside with breathtaking views of the Derwent Valley. More

Denby Pottery Village. A behind the scenes tour of the historic working factory to meet the skilled crafts people who have been producing quality Denby for over 200 years. More
