The centre of the UK
Located pretty much in the centre of the UK, The Peak District is an easy drive north west of London, north of Birmingham and on the doorstep of large cities such as Greater Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds.

Most of the National Park lies in the northern area of Derbyshire but it also covers parts of Staffordshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.

Dark Peat and White Peak
The north of the National Park is rugged with moorland and bogs resting upon millstone grit (used for grinding corn or sharpening Sheffield steel) that was once part of the Scottish Highlands way back in geological time. This is called the ‘Dark Peat’. The south is gentler with rolling limestone hills. This is called the ‘White Peak’. The Pennines, a mountain range running up the spine of England, starts at one end in the north of The Peak District, a 256m (412km) long distance path called the Pennine Way beginning at Edale.

UK's first National Park
The Peak District was the UK’s first National Park established in 1951. 38,000 people live here. Owing to its location in the heart of England, there are a staggering 10 million visits to the Park each year.
