Parking is easy cost about £1.00 for 2 hours plenty of time to take a look around and have a snack. If you want a boat trip on the canal would suggest paying for longer parking. The scenery is really pretty its a nice quiet place for adults and children to visit. There is a museum if you want to... More

Had a wonderful walk along the canal from Cromford and then lunch in the restaurant, afterwards we went on the barge crewed entirely by volunteers who explained all about the aims and achievements of the band of volunteers who have toiled to open up the stretch of the canal so far open and also their aims for the future. It... More

We always come for a walk along the canal and always find it a pleasure! Everything is so well maintained and the cafe's are also such a pleasure to go into! We take our dog who also enjoys it!

Had a really nice walk today along the Cromford canal. Parked (for free) just outside Cromford mill, flat and easy walk to High Peak Junction with 3 young children, pram friendly. Nice little info centre and shop at HP junction, coffee machine, ice creams, maps etc, toilets and a little museum that you could pay to go in (we didn't,... More

Had a wonderful boat trip with such knowledgable polite, helpful volunteers. A well equipped boat, comfy seating excellently priced on board snack shop serving hot /cold drinks and snacks. Trip took approx 2 hours but on board loo should you require. Car parking very reasonably priced for the area (£2.60 for 4 hours) and is right next to boarding for... More

We had a great time on our horse drawn canal boat trip on Sunday with Vix. The boat was well equipped and the seats comfy. Vix was extremely knowledgeable and clearly knows her stuff. It was great to hear about the canal itself, as well as the local area. We were taken into the back of the boat to see... More

A lovely day out on the canal boat, but was very surprised to see that people had booked and then didnt have a place on the narrow boat, What a shame, it needs to be better organised. The man giving the guided trip , you couldnt hear what he was saying , he needed a microphone. Such a shame as... More

Expensive parking with mediocre facilities. No menus at cafe so difficult to order with pets. Canal was scummy.

Have just returned from a peaceful and relaxing walk along the canal, from Cromford. The path is solid and the setting sublime. Walking with a dog it was also good to see a plentiful number of dog bins along the walk and also in Cromford itself, something that has not always been so plentiful during our holiday in the Peak...
