Ashbourne in Derbyshire is known as the gateway to Dovedale, Izaak Walton country, and the Peak District National Park. However, Ashbourne has much to offer the visitor in its own right.

Ashbourne is a market centre for the surrounding for the surrounding area and has been since it was first granted a charter to allow stalls in its market place in 1257 and being made a royal borough in 1276. There were fairs selling sheep and cattle, horse fairs 3 times a year, cheese fairs 4 times a year, and today Ashbourne still has a market in its market place on thursdays and saturdays.
