Wirksworth is a vibrant market town which delightfully mixes a rich, well connected & vital industrial past with an exciting, forward-looking innovative and artistic future. We are well connected geographically, yet surrounded by beautiful and ecologically diverse countryside.

With a wealth of activities, outdoors and indoors, events, live music, heritage railways, great pubs, cafes and independent shops, Wirksworth’s size belies the weight it pulls both culturally and in the new technologies, hosting artists and writers from the past and present, and being home to  internationally known sportspeople and artists.

Come along and find out what Wirksworth has to offer you!
