We really had a really lovely day out at Shipley park and there is so much space to explore. It is home to some lovely buildings, plenty of wildlife and the terrain keeps changing as you go around. This walk can be as long or as short as you would like and there are areas you can access, without the need for hiring the Tramper. If however, you would like to explore further, then I would highly recommend hiring a tramper. We managed to explore only a small part of the park and will definitely be back to see more. Be sure to check out the Access for all schemes run by Derbyshire County Council to find out how to join! https://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/leisure... Access here has been well thought out and the staff are really helpful and made us feel welcome. Shipley Park has a fantastic gift shop, lots of information and a cafe at the visitors center, as well as the lovely cafe near to the site of Shipley Hall. We give Shipley Park 9 out of 10. Great parking, great facilities, good access, and plenty of disabled facilities. We dropped them by one point as we could not access some of the grass areas due to the wooden barriers.
Transport & Parking
We used the tramper, if you were using your own aids, access would have not been as easy. There were some areas that you could only access if you were able-bodied. With the tramper, we could access all the areas we wanted to access.
