Numbered amongst Matlock Bath's visitors before the advent of the railway were members of European Royal families and nobility, British politicians, academics, clergy, members of the British aristocracy and upper and middle classes of society. Below is a sample, extracted from the newspapers of the day. Sir Robert Peel, in 1835, had just finished his first term of office as Prime Minister. Earl Grey, an 1841 visitor, had also served as Prime Minister. Research shows that Dwarkanauth Tajore (newspaper spelling), described in 1842 as a Burmese Chief, one of the first Indian industrialists and entrepreneurs.

They would have stayed at The Old Bath | The New Bath | Bath Terrace | The Temple | Hodgkinsons (previously Varley's and Robinson's) and various boarding houses.
