Enjoy Spring in Bakewell with Dawei!
Hi Guys, it's Dawei Li here, a Chinese ambassador at Sheffield. You can find out more about me here on-line.
Spring is coming and it is good time to explore the nature. We are lucky
that we live near a national park - Peak District, which includes a rich
diversity of natural and cultural heritage.
It is the first national park in the UK and there are many pastimes to do there, such as cycling, walking and wildlife watching. It
contains a few nice villages and small towns. Let me tell you my favorite town
there - Bakewell.
Bakewell is in the Derbyshire County council area (Postcode: DE45
1GA) which is located on the River Wye and close to the tourist attractions of Chatsworth
House and Haddon Hall. There are a few interesting shops
and wonderful food there. If you fancy local British food, then fish
&chips there is a
must-try. If you
fancy traditional pub food, then The White Lion is a good place to go. Driving
will be a best way to explore the Peak District and Bake well. But don’t worry,
if you don’t have a car. There are a few buses can delivery you to there!
No.215 and no. 218 can pick you up near the Moor and let you get off at Bake
well. This is the website of Peak District if you want to find more information
Fancy going now? Have a nice spring there!
