In the heart of the Derbyshire countryside

Situated in the picturesque Amber Valley, in the heart of Derbyshire’s beautiful countryside, the landscape that surrounds The Hayes is one of the most impressive in the country. Vibrant market towns dot the local area with a number of historic sights, cultural attractions and pretty villages just a stone’s throw from the venue.

Delegates attending a weekend or week-long event at The Hayes are perfectly placed to take advantage of the site’s stunning surroundings. From walking in the open countryside to visiting one of the most historic houses in England, the local area is packed full of things to see and do.

Home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House is one of the most famous, and most beautiful, stately homes in the country. Set in expansive parklands, on the banks of the river Derwent, Chatsworth is home to a collection of priceless works of art, irreplaceable pieces of furniture, neoclassical sculptures and important books and artefacts.

Delegates staying at The Hayes will find it easy to visit Chatsworth. Once there, they’ll be able to explore the breath taking grounds, take in the splendour of the home’s interior and learn a little more about the history of this fascinating country house.

Crich Tramway Village is an absolute must for any fans of British transport staying at The Hayes. Within the beautifully restored period village visitors will find the National Tramway Museum, a traditional pub, an old style sweet shop and a working letterpress. Classic trams can be seen running along the village streets, giving visitors a rare glimpse into a bygone age of travel. Most trams are still operational and sightseers can enjoy a trip in a vintage vehicle during their visit.

Another great destination for railway and transport enthusiasts is the Midland Railway Centre, just a short drive from The Hayes. Boasting an outstanding fleet of classic trains and offering visitors unforgettable trips through the stunning Derbyshire countryside, a trip in one of these iconic locomotives is the perfect way to see a little more of the local area. Special events are held throughout the year, so check to see whether your visit to The Hayes coincides with any of these occasions.

With so much on offer in the surrounding area, The Hayes is the perfect destination for delegates of all ages. From families and couples to groups and individuals, everyone who visits the site will enjoy a weekend packed with fascinating trips and unforgettable sights.
