Packed full of history and culture, Chesterfield is the largest town in Derbyshire and is known as the 'Gateway to the Peak District'. By opting for car hire, Chesterfield will not disappoint as you'll be able to get around and see the sights, as well as the beautiful countryside.

A pretty market town and close to the Peak District, there is plenty to see and do during your stay...

Located in the town centre is the museum and art gallery exhibiting the 'Story of Chesterfield', which is ideal if you want to learn more about the town itself.

Overlooking the museum is the 14th century Parish Church known as the Crooked Spire Church. It is famous for its spire which was built straight and has since become twisted. It is 70m (228ft) tall and leans 2.9m (10ft) from its centre, due to the amount of lead tiles built on top of it. The spire has become an icon of Chesterfield and a tourist attraction.

Shoppers will be in heaven in Chesterfield. Not only does the town boast one of the biggest open-air markets in the country, the pretty, medieval narrow streets have a range of unique and independent shops. For high street stores, visit the Pavements Shopping Centre which has ample parking for your hire car.

Those after outdoor pursuits should pay a visit to Queen's Park. There is a boating lake and playgrounds for the children, as well as a swimming pool and cricket ground for those who like to be active. 

Chesterfield also has a beautiful canal surrounded by stunning countryside. Take a walk or cycle alongside it and spot the wildlife. Those interested in fishing can do so wherever a fishing platform is built. And if you want to enjoy a trip on the canal, then the John Varley Narrowboat is popular with its regular tours. 

Hiring a car will allow you to get out and about and explore further. You can pick up your hire car in Chesterfield from a convenient downtown location, after finding the best deal by using our search gadget to the left.
