Famous as the home of Bolsover Castle, which isn’t really a Castle but an elegant 17th Century mansion, this small market town is better known locally for its nature reserves.

The Peter Fidler Reserve is named after the famous Canadian explorer who was born in Bolsover. The Stockley Trail links it to the Carr Vale Flash Nature Reserve, a great place for bird watching.

Antique enthusiasts should head for the Bolsover Antiques Centre in a converted pub close to the Castle. They stock a wide range of antiques, collectables and vintage memorabilia, as well as small furniture, shabby chic and paintings.


Bolsover market days are Tuesday and Friday and take place in the Market Place between 8.30am and 1pm.
