Visit Bolsover
What’s Going On…

Unlike larger centres of population, Bolsover and its’ surrounding villages have perhaps changed less than most.

The town’s early development during the Middle Ages followed the building of William Peveril’s 12th century castle, making it along with Castleton one of only two planned towns in Derbyshire.

A Great Variety of Places to Eat Out & Drink
