About

When: 9th May 2023, 1:30pm

Join us for our members familiarisation trip hosted by the National Trust at Calke Abbey, in Ticknall near Derby.

With peeling paintwork and overgrown courtyards, Calke Abbey tells the story of the dramatic decline of a country house estate. The house and stables are little restored, with many abandoned areas vividly portraying a period in the 20th century when numerous country houses did not survive to tell their story.

Discover powerful stories of a family who amassed a vast collection of hidden treasures. Visit the beautiful, yet faded walled gardens and explore the orangery, auricula theatre and the kitchen gardens. Escape into the ancient and fragile habitats of Calke Park and its National Nature Reserve.

To book your place please call Caroline Cordasco on 01246 212924.

Our members' trips offer a great opportunity to meet like-minded businesses whilst learning more about local attractions, so you can provide the best experience for your guests and customers. There is no charge for members of Visit Peak District & Derbyshire to attend, all we ask is that you make your own way there.
