From Our Editors

Ecclesbourne Valley Railway offers a traditional steam travel experience through the rolling plains of the Peak District. The railway begins at the ancient market town of Wirksworth and terminates at Duffield, home to the 48-acre Eyes Meadow nature reserve. The restored diesel trains sport vintage decor and a host of period features. Steam enthusiasts can opt for hop-on hop-off travel with a day pass, embark on a murder mystery trip or enjoy a three-course dinner as the train rolls through the Derbyshire countryside.

There's very little to do in Duffield so I suggest making this your start point and then take advantage of all that Wirksworth has to offer. Alternatively, do the return from Wirksworth without getting off and then take your car up to Black Rocksand the Stone museum, just 10 minutes away.Enjoy the picturesque village afterwards. Great day out if planned ahead.

Loved it! Only downside is the times of the trains. We started from Duffield and then you get either 30 minutes in Wirksworth (not long enough) or about 2 hours and 30 minutes in Wirksworth (which is far too long).

The train journey was lovely for my 2 year old grandson. Wirksworth was difficult to get in a café with a pushchair as the cafes were so small. not a lot to do otherwise.

Everyone was friendly and helpful and the whole place seems well run by enthusiastic people. We had a well presented jacket potato lunch on the buffet car at Wirksworth, a browse around the shop and information and a ride to Duffiled and back. We were lucky enough to sit behind the driver and while we were waiting to leave he gave us a really interesting run through about how to drive the train. Fantastic.
