Derbyshire, administrative, geographic, and historic county in the East Midlands of England. The landscape varies from the bleak moorlands of the northern Peak District to the Trent lowlands in the south, and industry ranges from tourism in the Peak District to mining and engineering in the eastern and southern coalfields.
If you’re seduced by the opulence of stately homes, Chatsworth House will transport you to a Jane Austen novel, and if you’re into the Industrial Revolution, the world’s first factories as we know them appeared on the Derwent River Valley in the late-1700s and are a UNESCO site.
