Chesterfield Tourist Information & Travel Guide

Chesterfield lies in the borough of Derbyshire and is predominantly a market town. It is the largest town in Derbyshire and is famous for the ‘Crooked Spire’ with regards to the architecture of the Church of Saint Mary and All Saints. The spire is not actually directly attached to the church and is surprisingly kept in place due to its weight.

Chesterfield also has a huge market with over 200 stalls providing the finest fruit and vegetables. From its opening in 1165 many centuries ago, Chesterfield has a vibrant market and is worth a visit. The flea market is open every Thursday and the farmers market opens on each second Thursday per month. General market days function on all Monday’s, Friday’s and Saturday’s. They also hold a car boot sale every Sunday at the Holywell Cross Car Park.

For a more cultural experience of Chesterfield you can visit the Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery. The museum takes you back in time when the area was originally a roman fort and goes through the history behind the Crooked Spire Church. The museum also looks at the Industrial Revolution with relation to the construction of local industries and railway stations. The Art Gallery showcases many national historical art pieces such as the work of Joseph Syddall, one of England’s leading draughtsmen.

You can also visit the Barrow Hill Roundhouse Railway Centre which was built in the late 18th century. It was primarily built as a maintenance centre for steam railway engines where constant regimented repairs would take place. Many railway centres had cone shaped roofs which is where the name Roundhouse originated from. By the 1860’s these buildings grew larger in size and eventually lost their conical shape however the name Roundhouse still remained in place.

Following a certain time period, most Roundhouses had to close down as the age of the steam engine had elapsed so these buildings were often completely destroyed. Barrow Hill managed to change with the times and went on to become an engine shed for diesel rail engines where coal would be transported from local mines. British Rail tried to shut it down in the early nineties, fortunately a local society protested and in present day it stands as the single, only working roundhouse in England.

Another place of interest could be Chesterfield’s Peak District which is in fact the first national park in Britain. It can be found four miles from the town centre and its epic natural beauty highlights much of England’s greatest scenery. The district has footpaths that continue for hundreds of miles giving visitors time to digest the scenic view.

There are many ways to enjoy the Peak District, whether you wish to discover the range of wildlife or explore the history and heritage behind it, this is a place where visitors can find peace as the quiet country lanes and trails lead to a memorable day. From walking to cycling, to horseback riding through The Moors, you can take in your surroundings without the hassle of traffic and congestion, typically found outside of the district.

Pride of place in the Rovos stable goes to the historic and newly rebuilt Capital Park Station and locomotive yard, which is the heart and new headquarters of this private railway company.

For many visitors to South Africa, there is no finer way to see the country than on the popular 48-hour weekly journeys between Pretoria and Cape Town.

Travel the windswept grasslands of the gold rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo, the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic wine lands of the Cape to the Mother City of South Africa, Cape Town, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devils’ Peak and Lions Head.

Highlights of the north and southbound routes include a visit to the historic village of Matjiesfontein. This authentic, perfectly preserved Victorian Village, which was founded by Mr. Logan as a refreshment stop in 1890, also boasts an impressive museum on the Station platform. A stop is also made in Kimberley with an opportunity to enjoy a city tour, the Mine Museum and visit the world’s largest man-made excavation, the ‘Big Hole’.

The Blue Train has an aura of mystique about it. Kings and presidents have travelled on this magnificent moving five-star hotel. Its very name has become synonymous with the ultimate in luxury and personal service.

India Train Travel – From Rough And Ready To Rich And Romantic

India’s railway network connects its greatest cities with its remotest villages, and traveling across India by train will give you a great opportunity to see sites not accessible any other way.  Traveling by train during your stay in India can be one of the high points of your journey, but only if you plan carefully and know what to expect.

 

Booking passage on second-class non–air-conditioned trains will let you view the passing scenery through open windows, free of the film which covers the windows in air-conditioned cars.  Purchasing a seat in air-conditioned car, on the other hand, will keep you comfortable even in the peak of India’s hot season.  India’s trains, especially those which travel to the smaller villages, have a reputation for being late, so you will have to get used to delays.

 

If you find yourself waiting to get a connecting train, however, take time to observe your surroundings and immerse yourself in the chaos around you.  You will see food vendors offering snacks like deep thought pride whole wheat bread and hard-boiled eggs as borders with massive piles of luggage balanced on their heads guard in and around the crowds.  You should always stay close to your own luggage when traveling by train in India, to the point of chaining it to the rack in your sleeping compartment.  Chains are available for sale on the platforms at urban railway stations.

 

While larger railway lines include meals in the cost of a ticket, if you are traveling a smaller line to be much better off by bringing along your own package snacks, bottled water, sandwiches, and juice.  You will also be very glad you bring sanitary hand wipes are and your own toilet paper. 

 

India, of course, has some world class luxury train service in addition to its ordinary commuter trains.  These luxury trains include some of the most famous names in the world:  Palace on Wheels; the Fairy Queen; the Royal Orient; Kalka Shimla; and Deccan Odyssey.  Each of these magnificent trains follows a different route, but all of them offer exceptional service, dining, and luxurious accommodations.  The most famous of them, Palace on Wheels, has 14 opulent sleeping compartments with baths along with two full-service restaurants and a bar.

 

The Palace on Wheelâ??s “Week in Wonderland” trip, starting at $4900 per person double occupancy, makes a round-trip beginning in Delhi and progressing through (among other cities) Jaipur, Udaipur, Bharatpur, and Agra before returning to Delhi.  The fare includes meals, accommodations, and all sightseeing.  The Fairy Queen, which began operating in 1855, is the world’s oldest steam locomotive.

 

The most legendary of all Indian train journeys, however, is the the 15 day trip taken by the private train the Viceroy of India, which runs between Mumbai to Calcutta four times each year.  Tickets on the Viceroy of India run $9995 for Viceroy Class, or $14,995 for the Maharaja Suite.

 

The Deccan Odyssey is a 21-power luxury train which follows a seven day route along Maharashtraâ??s coast in western India, leaving from Mumbai and passing along the beach after unspoiled beach until arriving at the Goa.  The trip includes a visit to Pune and the opportunity to explore the Ajanta and Ellore caverns.  The Deccan Odyssey travels by night and stops for sightseeing during the day.  The price of the journey includes five-star meals, an on-board Ayurvedic spa, a gym, and much, much more.
