On the River Derwent at the edge of the Peak District National Park, there is plenty to do and see in and around Rowsley. The busy A6 road cuts the village in two where a broad bridge crosses the River Derwent near the fine old Peacock Hotel.

Rowsley developed with the coming of the railway and large marshalling yards and engine sheds were a hive of activity south of the village until the late 1960’s. The old railway has long gone but steam trains now run to Matlock, passing through Darley Dale thanks to Peak Rail.

A quieter part of the village follows the lane past St Katherine’s Church where there are some pretty cottages.

Caudwell's Mill is a grade II, listed, historic roller flour mill.

Peak Village is a factory outlet shopping centre situated at Rowsley. Aside from shops, it houses a coffee shop and restaurant. Peak Village is open daily throughout the year.
