Welcome to the Heritage Centre for Wirksworth, a fascinating and quirky market town on the southern edge of the Derbyshire Peak District – a place where geology and industry have shaped its character and the lives of its people for generations.
Our new museum brings to life the stories of this fascinating town, illustrating Wirksworth’s long history, the town’s quirky qualities, famous characters, industries and its long-established rural customs and celebrations.
Our monthly program of regular events and activities offers lots to do for visiting groups, children and families, including walks and talks, workshops and entertainment – please check our What’s On page for more information.
The Heritage Centre is open daily from 9am to 5pm, and Webster’s Cafe every day (including Sunday) from 9am to 4.30pm.
