    Car Parking

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Eyam Parish Council Car Park is the best place to park during your visit to Eyam. In February 2010, this car park still offered free parking. This is the higher of the two car parks and is not tarmac'ed so can be muddy during wet weather.

    The car park is open until 20:00 from April to September and until 17:00 from October to March. There is no overnight parking or camping within the car park.

    This car park, because of its slightly higher location, also offers great views over the village.

    Fondest memory: Eyam village is steeped in history and well worth a visit.

    Stroll around the village

    Favorite thing: On one level it's just another, though very pretty, historic English village.

    On another level though, the thing that makes Eyam unique is the history of the plague in 1665/6.

    Go into the church and the museum to learn about the events of 1665/6 and when you walk around the village look for the plaques on the cottages which give details of the events of that year. For example, the cottage in the photo is where the plague began and where the first victim was lodging and died.

    It's amazing to think that it's just another typical cottage, people still live there and have for over 400 years, yet it has that terrible history.
