Introduction to Wirksworth
This fascinating and ancient town has a wide variety of intriguing courtyards and gardens that are often hidden from view but offer glimpses of delight as you wander around the streets and pathways.

The Hidden Gardens and Courtyards of Wirksworth event began in 2009. The weekend gives a unique opportunity for visitors to look behind the walls and enjoy the towns own hidden and private spaces, where every size and type of garden and courtyard space is to be found.

Each year we try to include a number of new gardens, in order to create a different perspective for visitors to the town. 

Visitors follow a trail of approximately 25 gardens in and around the town centre of Wirksworth, with  some gardens providing delicious home made cakes and teas en route. The market town of Wirksworth is situated three miles from Matlock, 9 miles from Ashbourne and 15 miles from Derby (see 'Getting Around').
