it out – here’s our pick of the bunch when it comes to things to see and places to go on the Half Marathon route itself.
Stephensons Tea And Coffee House, Stephenson Place stephensonscoffeeandteahouse.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea that you’re after, the venue is the ideal place to unwind, and has been voted Cafe/Tea Room of the Year four times at the Chesterfield Retail Awards.

Odyssey Greek Restaurant, Knifesmithgate
One of the best places to eat
in Chesterfield, Odyssey Greek Restaurant is an idyllic place to go
for an evening out. Offering some of the best home-made Greek cuisine around, Odyssey features a stunning ‘garden’ indoor dining area with 50 tables, providing the traditional feel of a Greek restaurant.

Another of Chesterfield’s top 10 restaurants, Bottle & Thyme, on Knifesmithgate, is simply superb. It is perfect for a morning coffee, even better for breakfast, and ideal for a family evening meal out, catering for all your possible desires.
It’s also ethical and sustainable, and invests in good quality materials to comply with a zero-waste policy.

Chesterfield Market
The very definition of a traditional market within a beautiful market square.
Chesterfield’s market square is certainly a must-visit, and dates back to around 1165.
It’s one of the largest open air markets in England, with a general market open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, and regular flea markets, farmers markets, artisan markets, young persons markets and 1940s markets, plus a Medieval fun day, the annual Christmas lights switch-on and even Chesterfield Motor Fest!
The Shambles and The Yards
Chesterfield is awash with independent shops and cafes – with The Shambles and The Yards the best places to find them.
Did you know? The Shambles, located just round the corner from Chesterfield Market, also features one of Britain’s oldest pubs – The Royal Oak – and The Yards is home to sculptures of a falcon and a puppy, both of which were installed as part of the Chesterfield Cultural Renaissance project.
