Set largely within the county of Derbyshire, the Peak District is a beautiful and fascinating National Park, which combines stunning walking and cycling terrain with charming towns and villages.
Four visitor centres in Bakewell, Castleton, Derwent and Edale offer an abundance of information and inspiration for things to do during your stay.
The Peak District is a year-round destination, a kaleidoscope of colours comes with each season, with the amber leaves of autumn dowsing the landscape in a riot of warm shades, and the vibrant flowers of summer springing up like splashes from an artist’s paint palette. There are many ways to treat your eyes to the scenery on offer, from walking and cycling to joining nature tours or visiting stately homes.
One such example of finery is Chatsworth House, where the opulent interior is matched only by the stunning gardens within its grounds.
Families are well catered for too. When you’re not out and about enjoying the great outdoors for free, head for Speedewell Cavern, Gulliver’s Kingdom, Conkers, Peak Wildlife Park or Poole’s Cavern for more child-friendly fun.
The Peak District’s towns and villages compete in attractiveness with the scenery in which they sit. Some of the most beautiful are Bakewell (home of the Bakewell tart), Edensor, Hartington, Tissington and Hathersage.
