The stunning Peak District National Park covers over 550 square miles of the most beautiful areas of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, Yorkshire and even parts of Greater Manchester. It was the first National Park ever created in the UK in 1951, and now receives more than 10 million visitors each year. They come for the spectacular landscapes, lovely towns and villages, and the freedom to escape on miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycle trails.

The Peak District is renowned for its charming villages, with pretty cottages on narrow lanes, historic country churches and cosy pubs. You’ll be spoilt for choice here, but make sure you visit Castleton, with its lovely shops, magnificent show caverns, and incredible surrounding countryside. Or the intriguing plague village of Eyam, famed for its inspiring tale of bravery against the plague in the 17th Century. And for perfect Peak District beauty, it’s hard to beat walking in Ashford-in-the-Water, with its idyllic riverside setting, complete with a medieval bridge, pretty cottages, twisty lanes, a tearoom and cosy country pubs.

Camping in the Peak DistrictThe Peak District and surrounding area is also blessed with many bustling, historic market towns.  Be sure to try some of the famous Bakewell Pudding when visiting Bakewell, or enjoy a show at the magnificent Opera House in Buxton, designed by world-renowned theatre designer, Frank Matcham.  

The Peak District National Park has no shortage of grand stately properties for visitors to enjoy. Many consider the Jewel in the Crown to be Chatsworth House, the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Devonshire. The House is awe-inspiring, with lavish interiors and important collections of art, but its expansive gardens and acres of parkland are just as impressive. Or visit the superbly romantic Haddon Hall, deservedly acclaimed as one of the most beautiful medieval manor houses in England, looking like a scene from a fairytale on its hill above the River Wye.  

But the real draw for almost all visitors who want true Peak District experiences is its fantastic landscape. Despite its well-deserved popularity, it’s still very easy to escape the crowds here, with more than 1,800 miles of footpaths and bridleways. Many visitors come to hike in the hills and valleys, and the famous long distance footpath The Pennine Way starts in the pretty Peak District village of Edale. Others come to for the world-famous rock-climbing; Stanage Edge in Hathersage has almost 1,500 routes up its gritstone faces and is known in climbing circles as God’s Own Rock.

Whatever your reasons for visiting and wherever you choose to stay, you’re sure to find the very best Peak District Experiences in the UK’s original and favourite national park!
