Bolsover was granted a market town charter almost 800 years ago by Henry III and markets are still held here on Tuesdays and Fridays. The Town Council is responsible for the area's parks, cemetery, allotment gardens and community halls. The Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6.45pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend and give their views.

The area has a rich and varied history with the first reference appearing in the Domesday book of 1086. The town centre has been designated a conservation area in recognition of its special and architectural interest and there are 21 grade listed 1 or 2 buildings there. It also boasts Bolsover Castle, flagship English Heritage site in the East Midlands.

The primary role of the town is a local centre for Bolsover and the surrounding villages of Carr Vale, Shuttlewood, Stanfree, Bentinck and Whaley for which the Town Council provides various services. The town has a range of shops, offices and facilities for local people as well as the Assembly and Bainbridge Halls which provide up to date facilities for the community.

The town is well served by free car parks. The Town Hall can be found on Cotton Street with parking located close by. Junction 29A of the M1 now provides direct access to the town.
