⚠ COVID-19 Pandemic

As Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and surrounding counties are now under Tier 4 restrictions, we regret that all group activities are suspended until further notice.

Please visit the Ramblers Coronavirus page for further advice and information.

Public Transport Information

Some walks listed in the programme are marked as being accessible by public transport. The following links may help you identify suitable transport services. Be sure to check timetables closer to the walk date.

Fares

Reduced group fares are available for some routes, including:

On East Midlands Railway services, if you’re a group of 3 to 9 adults, you get 34% off the cost using a GroupSave ticket. This applies on trains towards Worksop, Matlock and Grantham. It would not be valid on CrossCountry Trains services from Nottingham to Derby, except for the Matlock-Derby-Nottingham route.

Notes

The Transpeak bus service no runs between Derby and Buxton. The Red Arrow provides a frequent connecting bus service between Nottingham and Derby bus stations. Alternatively, take the train to Matlock and connect with the Transpeak bus there.

For travel from Nottingham to Derby, especially if connecting with another bus, the Red Arrow bus will usually be more useful than the train, as Derby train and bus stations are not close together. If travelling from Derby to Nottingham, be aware that Victoria bus station is about a twenty minute walk from the train station and the (predicted to re-open in 2021) Broadmarsh bus station.
