Ashbourne is an ancient market town in the Derbyshire Dales. Famous for its gingerbread and the Shrovetide Football match that is played right through the town, Ashbourne is also ideally located for those looking to visit the Peak District as well as making the most of the picturesque countryside, grand country houses and the surrounding villages and towns.
Ashbourne is renowned for its fantastic array of shops that can be found throughout the town’s medieval streets and clustered around the historic cobbled market place. You’ll find everything from independent boutiques and antique shops to speciality food stores, galleries and gift shops as well as fine restaurants, bistros and cafes.
Many of the restaurants in Ashbourne are housed in the beautiful historic buildings such as those found on Church Street, which is considered to be the finest showing of Georgian houses in Derbyshire. Thanks to the fantastic local connections, locally-sourced produce from across Derbyshire frequents many of the restaurants menus.
