Area Overview

Ashbourne is a historic market town in Derbyshire, known as the ‘Gateway to the Peak District’ due to its proximity to the Peak District National Park. The town is well-known in the area for the Royal Shrovetide Football Match which involves crowds playing ball in the streets of Ashbourne, and is a tradition that goes back hundreds of years. Timbered buildings and independent shops make the town a popular place to visit, particularly in the summer when temperatures can reach 22°C. Winter temperatures average 1°C, but although this is not peak season, the town still receives many visitors at this time of year.
