On the 14th (Mon), tour the pleasant surroundings at Ridge Walk Mam Tor to Losehill and then take an in-depth tour of Eyam Plague Village Museum. On the 15th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for gifts at Grindleford Community Shop, take in the exciting artwork at Chatsworth House, thenexamine the collection at Bakewell Old House Museum, and finally take in the exciting artwork at White Peakhouse Gallery.

Plan my Bakewell trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Windhoek, Namibia to Bakewell is an approximately 18.5-hour combination of flight and car. Traveling from Windhoek to Bakewell, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Windhoek in December, with highs in Bakewell at °C and lows at °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to drive to Alnwick.
