Contact details

Bakewell Visitor Centre is fully accessible and ideally placed to welcome you to Bakewell and the 'White Peak' when you arrive. The centre is located in the atmospheric 17th century Old Market Hall. The centre was recently refurbished in November 2020 to provide an improved open retail and easy access space.

Mezzanine Floor

The gallery area, located upstairs on the mezzanine floor, presents a visual celebration of the Peak District National Park. Take a moment to learn more about the special qualities of the national park through our digital interpretation touchscreen display and gallery.
