The Peak District is one of England’s premier national parks and covers some of the most striking areas of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Yorkshire. It is one of Europe’s busiest places, but with 555 square miles of space begging to be explored there is plenty of opportunity to get lost in its unique landscape.
The wonderfully diverse landscape is made up of two distinctly different areas: the White Peak which is made up of lush green pastureland and undulating gentle hills, whereas the Dark Peak is much wilder; with untamed heather and outcrops of black granite twisted into torturous shapes by centuries of wind and rain.
One place worth visiting is the Heights of Abraham which is a 60 acre woodland estate whose highlight are the cable cars which, rising from the valley floor, transport you in comfort and safety to absorb the spectacular views of the Derwent Valley nestled in amongst the splendour of the wider Peak District.
Crich National Tramway Museum is another attraction which will transport the visitor back in time with its vintage trams and atmospheric period street. The buildings here are authentic and, in some cases, have been rescued from other parts of the country- literally brick by brick!
You can also visit Chatsworth House, known as the “Palace of the Peak District”. It is set in 105 acres of exquisite gardens which offer an abundance of laid gardens, magnificent park views and elaborate water features for the eyes to feast on.
