Here's 11 great places to go with kids in the Chesterfield and North Derbyshire area - including Queen's Park, Hardwick Hall, Matlock Farm Park, Chesterfield Bowl and Chatsworth House

Choosing something to do with the kids on a weekend or day off might be a little more difficult than you think.

That’s not because there isn’t much do, but because Chesterfield simply has so much choice to meet everyone’s tastes.

Perhaps your little one prefers to let off steam running around soft play or the great outdoors or learning something new at an educational attraction.

Maybe ten-pin bowling, arcades or animals are more your cup of tea.

Whatever the case there is something for everyone right on your doorstep.

Here we have put together a guide to the area’s top attractions to help you on your way, courtesy of the Day out with Kids website.
