Hotels in Derbyshire : Best Places to Visit in Derbyshire

One of the most popular tourist destinations in North England is the Arbor Low Stone Age Henge monument. It is of unique cultural curiosity which archaeologists can’t fully explain. If you want to visit this place, you can find some hotels in Derbyshire that are close to this area.

The purpose of the structure or the identity of the people who built it still remains a mystery. It was built 375 meters above sea level, on top of a hill. Aside from seeing the mysterious Stone Henge up close, you will find an awesome view of surrounding landscapes from the site.

The structure was built at around 2500 BC and takes on a circular shape. It is 76 meters in diameter and about 2 meters tall. There is a ditch in the interior of the structure that is 1.5 meters deep. Visitors can enter the circular structure from the south-east or north-west of the bank.

The middle part of the structure contains 46 large stones and 13 small stones. The stones are arranged in a circle with some pieces in the center. The stones lay flat on the ground but it is not certain if they were once upright and just fell to the ground.

Some theorists think that Christians laid the stones flat on the ground to desecrate the site. No proof has been found to actually confirm this theory. Close to the south-east entrance a Bronze Age tumulus was added to the original structure which contains several graves as discovered in 1845 by Thomas Bateman.

Once in the area, you can ask people who work in hotels in Derbyshire about directions to get to the site. The site is in the car of the English Heritage. You can gain access through a farm where you will also find a car park. A small admission fee is required to enter the monument.

Aside from the Stone Henge monument, you can find other interesting places to visit in Derbyshire. The Peak District National Park is one of Europe’s most visited places and is located in Derbyshire. Chatsworth sits in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

Chatsworth is a famous historical estate that is home to gorgeous water features, gardens and art galleries. There are shops and restaurants in the area too that caters to millions of tourists that visit this place each year. The Chatsworth House sits on a 1000 acre park with a farm house.

Other places to visit near the hotels in Derbyshire are the town of Matlock which is a town that sits at the edge of the Peak District National Park. Matlock used to be an agricultural town until recent years when it was turned into a spa town after the development of a hydrotherapy system called “Hydro.”

Carsington Water, Alton Towers, and the Crich Tramway Village are other interesting sites to visit while in Derbyshire. If you want to see a stunning view of Derbyshire, visit the Heights of Abraham. The Peak Cavern is also a must-see place if you want to enter the largest cave entrance in the UK.
