The Agricultural Business Centre is a few minutes walk from the centre of Bakewell, the major market town of the Peak District. In this charming country town can be found a wide range of shops, galleries and cafes. The award winning Old House Museum is only a few minutes' walk away, and is an interesting museum about the history of bakewell and Derbyshire life.
A short drive south of the ABC is Haddon Hall, which was the  major location for BBC TV's production of Jane Eyre, and is open to the public. The actual scenery and places that Charlotte Bronte was thinking of when she wrote the book are around Hathersage few miles to the north, where is the alleged last resting place of Little John, of Robin Hood Fame.
A few miles east of Bakewell is Chatsworth, home of the Devonshire Family. The recent film of Pride and Prejudice was filmed at Chatsworth as was the more recent film production of The Duchess.  The Gardens and farmyard at Chatsworth are well worth a visit.
The market towns of Ashbourne, Matlock and Chesterfield are within a 20 minute drive, as is the spa town of Buxton - reputedly the highest town in England.
