Top 10 Recommended Places To Visit in Peak District National Park

Advertisement
 

Edale

Beautiful location, up there with the best in the UK in our opinion. Follow the Pennine Way up onto the Kinder Scout plateau. Great views south to Mam Tor. Visit the local caverns, including Blue John Cavern.

Bakewell

Visit above all for the Bakewell Tart. Then explore this pretty town before heading off to Chatsworth House or Monsal Dale.

Eyam

Markets itself around the tragic events of 1665 when the plague was discovered here. Isolating itself from the outside world, the village tells its story in a local museum and via information boards. Heartbreaking stories.

Tideswell

Visit for the 'Cathedral of the Peak' and then explore the surrounding countryside, especially Monsal Dale on The Monsal Trail.

Cromford

Birthplace of the modern factory system and part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Matlock just up the road. Essential visiting.

Hathersage

Pretty village to the east of the Park. We'd recommend visiting on your way to the sublime Stanage Edge.

Castleton

In the shadow of Peveril Castle and across the valley from Mam Tor. Visit one of the many local caverns and walk the beginning of The Limestone Way.

Ashbourne

On the southern fringe of the Park with easy access to both Dovedale and the Tissington Trail.

Holmfirth, West Yorkshire

On the northern fringe of the Park in West Yorkshire. Best known as the stunning location for the BBC series 'Last of the Summer Wine'.

Buxton

Spa town to the west of the Peak District. Top location from which to explore the High Peak and the rolling dales around Tideswell.
