Get a True Taste of Derbyshire

Bakewell, Derbyshire

Tuck into a delicious experience in Bakewell, home of the world-famous Pudding...

Everyone knows the Bakewell Tart but did you know that in Derbyshire, locals might grumble and the mention of  it- as there is a preferable option available in the market town of Bakewell... the Bakewell Pudding. 

First made accidentally in the 19th century, the recipe has been safely guarded ever since. If you're a foodie or someone with a sweet tooth, you've got to visit the town and taste the superior pudding, available at the very charming Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop.


This culinary hotspot is also home to one of the best farmers’ markets in the country. On the last Saturday of every month delve into a staggering array of local produce, from honey and cheese to piles of farm-fresh vegetables and golden baked goods.  

Your own kitchen skills can be perfected at specialist courses run by Bakewell’s prestigious Hartingtons School of Food, with expert tutors giving master classes in everything from beer brewing to cheese making inside a beautiful converted mill.


Bakewell is 3 hours north of London by both car and train, so why not treat yourself to some great local Derbyshire food!
