About Victoria Gardens.

Eight miles from Derby, eleven from Loughborough and ten minutes drive from the M1, Melbourne has a peaceful, market town appeal that contrasts with its exceptionally convenient location.

A half-hourly bus service operates between Melbourne and Derby, and National Cycle Route 6, a long distance route which will eventually link London with the Lake District, has an access point less than half a mile from Victoria Gardens that offers alternative routes into Derby and Loughborough.

East Midlands Airport, four and a half miles away, serves destinations throughout the UK and Europe as well as New York.

Melbourne’s town centre retailers include a convenience store, a pharmacy, a post office, a newsagent, a delicatessen, a Sainsbury’s Local supermarket, fashion outlets, and services such as hairdressers and opticians. The shops are interspersed with a wide choice of cafés, restaurants, pubs and takeaways, creating a lively hub with a real sense of local character, and there is a recycling
site in the town centre. A footpath near Victoria Gardens leads to King’s Newton, ten minutes walk away, where there is a highly regarded farm shop and a charming pub and restaurant, the Hardinge Arms.

The countryside around Melbourne has a network of paths for walking and cycling, presenting opportunities to explore attractions like the historic Calke Abbey and its beautifully landscaped grounds, and the magnificent Staunton Harold reservoir. Melbourne Pool, less than 15 minutes walk from Victoria Gardens, is a medieval mill pond enlarged and transformed into a popular spot for
relaxing and enjoying the abundant wildlife, while a local park near Victoria Gardens includes a children’s playground.

Leisure amenities range from golf courses and a health club with a gym and pool at Breedon Priory, two miles away, and a Picture of Health fitness studio in the town centre, to the celebrated
Donington Park motorsports circuit and museum, which hosts periodic rock festivals as well as racing. The trip into Derby, an excellent and diverse shopping destination, opens up a cosmopolitan
choice of theatre, music, cinema and nightlife.

A few minutes walk from Victoria Gardens, the town’s Infant and Junior schools are set in spacious, open grounds. Pupils from Melbourne normally move on to Chellaston Academy, a well-regarded comprehensive with a sixth form college.

All three schools are assessed by Ofsted as good. Melbourne Medical Centre, conveniently located in the town centre, offers full gp and nursing services, and there is a dental surgery in Castle
Street, less than ten minutes walk from the development.
