Discover Chesterfield this Bank Holiday

We´re blessed with two bank holiday weekends this month.

Whether or not you have Bank Holiday plans, we thought we’d take the opportunity to remind you of all the great things you can do in and around Chesterfield.

You’ve probably guessed that here At Northern Tea Merchants we are incredibly proud of our Chesterfield heritage. The town has been our home for more than 80 years.

So, whether you’re local or from outside the area let us take you on a virtual journey of Chesterfield ahead of the Bank Holidays.

We’re conveniently located on Chatsworth Road – the gateway to the Peak District National Park and the stunning Chatsworth House – arguably one of the most popular visitor destinations in the Peak District.

Of course, there’s not just the house itself at Chatsworth, there are also beautiful gardens, a farmyard and playground for younger visitors, and the famous Chatsworth Farm Shop. Chatsworth is proud to serve our teas in its restaurants and we also blend and pack the delightful Lucy Loveheart Chatsworth Tea Bags in the quirky tin, and the Chatsworth English Breakfast and Earl Grey Tea bags that are on sale in the Farm Shop.

Spend a day rediscovering Chesterfield! Town centres are changing, there’s no denying that. Chesterfield is lucky enough to be home to myriad independent retailers like ourselves, as well as a popular open air market.

And one thing we haven’t mentioned yet, and cannot forget if we’re talking about Chesterfield, is the Crooked Spire. Did you know that you are able to climb the spire? There are daily tours and it is well worth the climb. The views of Chesterfield and the Peak District are fantastic. We thoroughly recommend it. Find out how to book a tower Tour here.

The church is also right next to the town’s Tourist Information Centre. Pop in, you might even spy some Northern Tea Merchants products on sale in there…

If you’re looking for something a bit more leisurely, then the Pomegranate Theatre has an abundance of options to suit everybody. Did you know that screenings of cinematic films are held in the theatre? It’s also the setting for some great ballet, plays, workshops, comedians and pantomimes.

Enjoy the sunshine from the garden or curl up with a good book. Whatever makes you happy during the bank holidays, we hope you have a relaxing time!

And of course, there’s the most relaxing option of all – at home with your feet up, enjoying a cup of Northern Tea Merchants tea or coffee. Especially our tea and coffee of the month, this month aptly including the Queen’s Park Espresso Blend Coffee, created to celebrate the 120th anniversary of Chesterfield’s beautiful Queen’s Park.
