Details

Are you looking for a different or unusual gift? Do you need a leaving present, or a birthday present for someone who used to live in Chesterfield? Are you going to see family or friends overseas and need a special present from Chesterfield?

The Visitor Information Centre Gift Shop sells a range of unique souvenirs and locally produced gifts at prices to suit everyone. There's cut glass engraved with Chesterfield's famous 'Crooked Spire' Church, porcelain plates, mugs and boxes with pictures of the 'Crooked Spire' and kitchenware featuring Chesterfield and the surrounding area.

Scented gifts include candles from ‘On a Wick and a Prayer’ in Tissington. Other locally produced gifts include Chesterfield tea, local honey, glass by Drynose Dog, Clare Gage pots, Chesterfield Marmalade made by local chef Nick Buckingham and Ashbourne biscuits.

Buy someone a trip down memory lane with books like ‘Chesterfield Did You Know?' or ‘Aspects of Chesterfield’. Set someone on the road to fitness with a book of short walks or an Ordnance Survey map.

We sell a wide range of pictures, from limited edition prints by local artists Sheila Gill and Anne Bannister to Chesterfield Photographs. We also sell a range of greeting cards.

Check out our selection of British souvenirs featuring union jacks, red telephone boxes and London buses, and there's plenty of choice for the kids from fridge magnets to pens, pencils, yo-yos, teddy bears, colouring kits and notebooks.

Come and visit us - you might find just what you're looking for.
