Fascinating and fun for all the family.
The former Victorian consulting rooms are now home to the Aquarium
containing a selection of British and Tropical freshwater species.
From Piranhas to Terrapins and many interesting fish from different
regions of the world including the beautiful Malawi Cichlids. Something
to interest all the family.
The Petrifying Well
A Source of curiosity and amazement.
Almost forgotten now, even in Matlock Bath where several wells were
once visited by thousands of Victorian trippers.
Here you can come and see the ‘petrifying’ process taking
place in our working well as the famous Matlock Bath thermal water
is sprayed onto objects gradually turning them to stone.
The Hologram Gallery
A Fusion of Photography and Reality.
A fascinating and unique collection of three dimensional pictures
produced by laser technology. Images which float in space before
you, so real, you will not believe your eyes!
Matlock bath is situated in glorious countryside and is surrounded
by some of the most dramatic scenery in the Derbyshire Dales. Byron
referred to Matlock Bath as a romantic fragment of Switzerland set
in the heart of England.
Gemstone and fossil collection
A beautiful worldwide collection of gems and fossils including local
Blue John Stone.
All attractions are set in this lovely Victorian building which
was formerly the Matlock Bath Hydro dating back to 1883. Reminders
of its former splendor can be seen in the fine stone staircase,
the drinking fountain and huge iron girders spanning the thermal
The pool is fed by a spring from the hillside gushing 600,000 gallons
a day, at a constant temperature of 20C. This is where patients
would immerse themselves in the pool or take the waters to relieve
rheumatic ailments and improve digestive disorders.
Today, the health giving properties of the water are enjoyed by
the famous collection of large Mirror, Common and Koi Carp, weighing
over 30lbs. Visitors are welcome to feed the fish with food obtainable
from the Aquarium.
