Visitor information

Come to Chesterfield where you’re sure of a friendly welcome and a wide range of things to do.

Take a day in the town to find out how the Crooked Spire got its twist. Or go bargain hunting on Chesterfield Market every Monday, Friday or Saturday. Call on a Thursday for a rummage around the flea market, or check out local goods at the farmers’ market on the second Thursday of every month.

How come straight cucumbers were grown here more than a century before EU regulations? What made the market so important and how did medieval workers manage to build so high? Find all the answers at Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery.

Take some time to follow the free audio trail around the town centre. Visit all 30 points of interest or tailor make your own route from the map that comes with it. Call in at the Pomegranate Theatre and the Winding Wheel on your way round to find out what’s on in the evening, or check out the cinema listings when you pick up the trail at the Visitor Information Centre.

Stay overnight and explore the area – Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle are just a few of the things you’ll find just a short drive away. Not to mention great walking country, sleepy villages, cycle trails and stunning views.

Find out where to stay, what’s on, where to go and where to eat, not to mention places to shop, activities, how to get to Chesterfield and how to get in touch for more information and ideas on our tourism website –
