About Matlock Boats and Train
We have 10 little motor boats sitting on the boating lake within the historic victorian 'Hall Leys Park'. We also have a small diesel engine 'Little David' who travels up a short track before returning. Great for adults and children alike. Much loved attraction which has been here since the 1930's
