Derbyshire & The Peak District – Village Hideaways

If you haven’t visited this area of the country before, you’re in for a real treat. The Peak District and Derbyshire countryside is simply stunning. With rivers, springs, moors and dales at its heart, Derbyshire is known for having breath-taking views, pretty villages and bustling market towns.

The Derbyshire and Peak District countryside is full of hidden gems when it comes to nights out. Whether you are looking for traditional pubs, micro-breweries or specialist gin bars – we can put together a perfect route for you to take, stopping off at some of the greatest village hideaways, and even arrange the transport to get you around all evening, and back to your accommodation in one piece. Click here to find out more about our mini bus pub crawls. You can view our restaurant and bar suggestions here.



England’s most central city, Derby is a popular destination for get togethers from all over the country. The town is split into three main areas; The Cathedral Quarter, St Peters Street and the Intu Shopping Centre.

There are some great chain restaurants to visit inside the Intu centre along with a cinema and miniature golf course too. Our favourite place to head to is The Cathedral Quarter, full of independent restaurants, bars and clubs – a hive of activity in the evenings, with something for everyone to love. There is also a little hidden area of Derby, set away slightly away from the main city, called River Lights. The boulevard is set close to the river, with bars, restaurants, cafes and a casino!

We can arrange everything you need for your night out in Derby. We can make sure that you make the most of your time here and stay safe with transport to and from your accommodation. You can view our restaurant and bar suggestions here.



Nottingham, home to Robin Hood is fantastic place to visit for your hen or stag party night out. Much larger than Derby, Nottingham has something for everyone – from fine dining Michelin star restaurants, to budget friendly and wholesome pub grub!

With a concert arena, theatres, casinos, bars and restaurants – your evening out is set to be a good one. Nottingham city centre is not the only place to get your fix though, with some up and coming areas surrounding the city which are well worth a visit; West Bridgford, Hockley and the Lace Market up there with our favourites.

We can help you to have the best nights, safe in the knowledge that you will be taken back to your accommodation safely, and save some time with our queue jumping offering! You can view our restaurant and bar suggestions here.



The Steel city is a vibrant and creative place to be. The city itself is a particularly friendly one, with lots of culture to take in. With restaurants, bars, music and festivals – there is always something going on here.

You will see plenty of familiar chains around here, but there’s also a great selection of independents if that’s more your thing! Sheffield is the birthplace of the craft beer revolution – and has lots of quirky bars for something a little different. The Antiques Quarter is filled with café’s, independent bars and some hidden restaurants. Another must visit is Ecclesall Road, which is bustling with restaurants, bars and pubs, surrounded by green space!

When organising your night out in a strange city, it can be a little hard knowing where to go and what to do (without missing the good bits!). Let us take care of it for you, get you to Sheffield and back home again safely, with VIP treatment in Sheffield City Centre. You can view our restaurant and bar suggestions here.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben
