Bakewell is a popular tourist destination in Derbyshire, found right at the hart of the Peak District. The town grew up around a Roman fort at a fordable location on the River Wye, though most of the current buildings date from the 19th century.

The Packhorse Bridge dates from the 13th century and parts of the All Saints church date back to the 10th century. As well as acting as a gateway to the Peak District, Bakewell is famous for 15°C hot, iron-rich waters that can still be found welling up at both Bath-well in Bath Street and Holywell (Pete Well) in the recreation ground. It is also famous for the Bakewell Tart and a number of shops all claim to be selling the 'Original Bakewell Pudding' to visitors.

The town has a Tourist Information Centre giving information about walks, holidays, hotels, bed and breakfast (B&B) and various activities throughout the Peak District.
