Bakewell Guided Tours
Old House Museum, Bakewell, DE45 1DD     Phone : +44 (0)1629 813642



Bakewell is an Anglo-Saxon town, owing its origins to some unusual geographical features and the mediaeval warfare between Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. On our walking tour of just over an hour you can see buildings, monuments and artefacts dating back over a thousand years.

Bakewell boasts two Anglo-Scandinavian cross shafts, which are listed monuments, evidence of an Anglo-Saxon burh, the earthworks of a motte and bailey castle, a Tudor market hall and almshouses, gracious Georgian architecture and Gothic Victorian development.

There are stories about the Bakwell Witches and Norse gods. There are tales of the ghosts that haunt some of the old properties in town and of the notorious Bakewell Riots. Find out why the Duke of Rutland's warm water baths were never as popular as the Duke of Devonshire's. Discover the legends that have grown up surrounding Tudor royalty and local personalities and about the rivalry in the local Bakewell Pudding industry.

Guided tours operate between the beginning of April and the end of October. Children welcome. Groups welcome.
