Getting there & away
You can get to Castleton from Bakewell on bus 173 (45 minutes, five per day Monday to Friday, three per day at weekends) via Hope and Tideswell. The 68 goes to Buxton at 9am from Monday to Saturday, while the 174 gets all the way to Matlock on Sundays and bank holidays (4.35pm start).
The nearest train station is Hope, about 1 mile east of Hope village (a total of 3 miles east of Castleton) on the line between Sheffield and Manchester. At summer weekends a bus runs between Hope station and Castleton tying in with the trains, although it’s not a bad walk in good weather.
