Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

Carsington Water is ahuge draw for outdoor enthusiastswith outdoor activities including walking, cycling, fly fishing, birdwatching, sailing, canoeing, and windsurfing all available.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I. Here visitors will find many fine old buildings of great character including a magnificent Jacobean house known as Babington House.
