Derbyshire is an attraction in itself, and doesn't need much introduction. It is very hard in 150 words to tell you how great this attraction is, but I will try. This award winning attraction really did put a smile on my face. Not only because of its outdoor activities, but also for the amount of things to do indoors, making this an all weather type of attraction. But it has to be said, that although this is a great tourist attraction, there is also a learning element that comes along with a visit to Conkers, making this a great value for money attraction. With so much to do and see you will not be left twiddling your thumbs. I would suggest a full day here would allow you to see everything, but I guarantee you'll want to come back tomorrow!
