An attractive Grade 1 Listed Georgian Market town and home of the two day Shrovetide Football, Ashbourne is a very interesting place to spend an afternoon. Enjoy independent designer fashion boutiques and go antiquing for fine paintings, Triumph bikes, bronzes and furniture or Country Living shabby chic in the shops along Church Street. Don’t forget to take a look inside St Oswald’s Church where Catherine Boothby is laid to rest; savour specialist food shops and feast your eyes on some local art and pottery in the galleries. Stock up at Waitrose or Marks & Spencer food stores or have lunch in one of the many bars and cafes.
