Peak District Pub Tours

Fancy a pub crawl to some of the best pubs in the Peak District, but find they’re too far to walk to or struggle to get taxis? Well, Peak District Pub Tours is the answer! Book on to one of their scheduled tours individually, or book in a larger group for your own private tour. All transport will be provided for groups of up to 52 people. You will be taken, VIP style, to six of the best pubs in the Peak District before being dropped back off at your starting point in Bakewell. The tours will take you through some of the most breathtaking scenery, to some of the most picturesque villages in the Peak District, such as Hathersage, Eyam and Grindleford. Suitable for people travelling alone, right through to larger groups such as hen and stag parties. It’s simple – just get yourself booked on to one of their tours!

Peak District Pub Tours

All Peak District Pub Tours start and finish at Thornbridge Brewery Tap Room in Bakewell at 11.30am, where you can enjoy your first complimentary drink. You will also be given a 10% discount voucher to spend there, so you can treat yourself to some of their fabulous handmade pizzas before or after the tour, and perhaps a few drinks to take away at the end of the day!

Peak District Pub Tours

You will then be taken by your knowledgeable guide, by luxury minibus or coach (depending upon numbers), to five more of the Peak District’s favourite pubs and bars. At each one you can enjoy a complimentary pint, a glass of wine or a spirit and mixer as part of your Peak District Pub Tours Package. You’ll spend about an hour in each pub, so once you’ve finished your complimentary drink, it’s entirely up to you if you treat yourself to another! Don’t worry about queueing either – your drinks will all be pre-ordered en route to the next pub, so they’ll be ready and waiting for you in your reserved VIP seating area. If the weather is fine, seating will be reserved in some of the fabulous beer gardens, with fine views of the Peak District National Park, but if it’s cold outside seating will be reserved inside, often next to a roaring fire.

Should you wish to eat in one of the pubs, don’t worry, Peak District Pub Tours have got that covered too!  Before you depart you will be able to preorder any meals, and your food will be ready for when you arrive. 

You will be accompanied on your trip by a knowledgeable tour guide who has a wealth of knowledge, interesting facts and secret stories about each of the pubs you visit, as well as some you pass on the way! They will be at hand all day to ensure your tour runs smoothly and that you have the most memorable day……..depending on how much you drink of course!
