Cromford railway station serves as one of England’s prettiest train stations. The 19th-century station, originally called Cromford Bridge, was opened by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway, and one of the few stations along the line that still has its station buildings intact. It’s so rare, that the stone structures have received Grade II listed status. It sits next to the 700-metre-long Willersley Tunnel in the Derwent Valley some 15 miles north of Derby. It’s an unmanned station that is run and operated by East Midlands Trains and serves the small village of Cromford and the surrounding area. In popular culture, one of the platforms at Cromford was used on the cover of Oasis’ “Some Might Say” single. In peak weekday hours, there are departures every two hours direct to Nottingham in 59 minutes, and an hourly service to Derby in 29 minutes.
While you’re in Cromford, try to make some time for the Heights of Abraham, a hilltop park with walking trails and exhibition space. Alternatively, if you have brought the kids, they’ll be smiling from ear to ear if you take them to Gulliver's Kingdom where they can they ride the roller coasters.
