    Although stretching to include parts of Cheshire, Staffordshire, Greater Manchester, as well as south and west Yorkshire, most of the area known as the Peak District falls within the county of Derbyshire and under the auspices of the Peak District National Park. As the fifth largest national park in England and Wales, and one of the most-visited national parks in the world, the area offers the visitor a wonderfully diverse landscape of moorland and limestone countryside, in addition to beautiful towns and villages, and numerous historic country homes.

    Things to do in the Peak District

    The Peak District can offer the weary traveller some wonderful outdoor pursuits, with walking, mountain biking, rock climbing and canoeing at the forefront of many itineraries. Other more unusual and extreme sporting tastes are also catered for, whether hang gliding, paragliding or navigational training; alternatively take a more sedate approach to leisure, with craft courses and guided cultural tours.

     In addition to the wonders of the Peak District National Park, there is a wide selection of places to visit, including the amazing stately estate at Chatsworth, the historic homes at Haddon and Hardwick Halls, the Zoos at Blackbrook and Twycross, sporting activities at the renowned Uttoxeter Racecourse and Doveridge Clay Sports, not to mention the theme park and other family activities at Alton Towers.

    Top Destinations

    Glossop - This former mill town lies just outside the National Park boundaries and is known to have been settled in the Bronze Age. As the wool and cotton spinning industries developed, the proximity of the town to a plentiful water supply enabled the new commerce in cotton to take advantage of Richard Arkwright’s water-powered spinning frame. By the mid 1800s, the arrival of the railway helped to increase the population six-fold in less than 50 years.

    Buxton - Once a Roman spa town, the reputation of the spa waters was enhanced in Tudor times by the endorsement of Mary, Queen of Scots. The 5th Duke of Devonshire was responsible for much of the fine Georgian and Regency architecture, including the Crescent and the Great Stables (now known as the Devonshire Dome). The Pavilion, Gardens and Opera House are a testament to the further embellishments of the Victorian and Edwardian periods.

    Bakewell - A small market town in the Derbyshire Dales, close to both Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, Bakewell is still well-known as the home of the eponymous sweet pudding and tart.  

    Chatsworth - Home to the Dukes of Devonshire, the estate - including an award-winning farm shop - was developed into one of the leading 20th century English stately residences by the formidable Dowager Duchess, the former ‘Debo’ Mitford and widow of the 11th Duke.

    Matlock - On the south eastern edge of the Peak District, this former spa town sits on the River Derwent; the county town, it was once home to the steepest tramway in the world.

    Chesterfield - Derbyshire’s largest town is the site of one of the largest open air markets in the country. Best known for the ‘crooked spire’ of St Mary and All Saints church, the town was once at the centre of the coal mining industry. The Elizabethan splendour of Hardwick Hall lies nearby.
