The largest inland marina in Europe is close by at Willington Mercia House, not to mention Donington Race Track, which houses the Grand Prix Collection in the museum and hosts major motor cycling and racing events, as well as the yearly Download Festival. Ideally situated on the edge of The National Forest, you are given access to a wealth of beautiful countryside suitable for walking, bird watching and cycling. Travel a little further and you are in the Peak District, with Chatsworth House and the historic towns of Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, where there is a plethora of things for people of all ages to enjoy.
