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.

Enjoyable restful journey by train. But, make sure if you wish to stay on in Duffield for two hours, or return on the same train 15 minutes after arriving. Nothing in Duffield to do. Wished to have a coffee and cake, but had to wait to get back to Wirksworth for same.

Get there early as Wirksworth is lovely and the station also has a little cafe in an old buffet car. Not much at Duffield so we did a quick recce and jumped back in the train back to Wirksworth. If the weather plays nicely this is a perfect way to see lush 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).
