Have Some Free Time On Us at Ilam Park

The breath-taking view across to Dovedale from Ilam Park with the Italian Gardens in the foreground.

Enjoy some free time on us this weekend.  Visit Ilam Park and enjoy free parking all day on Saturday & Sunday 19th & 20th March 2011.  Visit the National Trust Visitor Centre and shop and take a stroll around Ilam Park to discover the renovated zig-zag paths, the mysterious 'Boil Holes' and St. Bertram's Bridge.  Explore Hinkley Wood and Paradise Walk before returning to the Manifold Tearoom for delicious, freshly-prepared lunches and cream teas. (Shop & Tearoom open 11am to 5pm)

The more adventurous can use Ilam Park as the base from which to start their walk through Dovedale or the Manifold Valley.  Those with a head for heights can head for the top of Thorpe Cloud or Bunster Hill and enjoy spectacular views back over Ilam or north towards Hartington and beyond.

Whether it's a long walk or a stroll and a coffee, you're guaranteed to find something to enjoy in this special corner of the Peak District.  And this weekend, it's on us!
