Top 10 Recommended Things To Do in Peak District National Park


Chatsworth House, Derbyshire

One of the UK's great country houses. Up there with Blenheim Palace World Heritage Site and Castle Howard. The estate is massive so plan for a full day out if you want to make the most of it.

Stanage Edge, Derbyshire

Series of dramatic cliffs popular with climbers. The views across the Peak District National Park from here are awesome. Close by is Hathersage, said to be a setting within Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre'.

Derwent Valley Mills, Derbyshire

Birthplace of the factory system and UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you have an interest in history and culture, this is essential visiting.

Pennine Way

Starts on the steps of a pub in Edale before heading up onto Kinder Scout. It's a wonderful yomp.

Blue John Cavern, Derbyshire

One of a series of impressive caves in the National Park. This one is by Mam Tor and up the road from Castleton and Peveril Castle.

Kinder Scout, Derbyshire

Extraordinary place. Dark peat and white sand, natural rock structures like Henry Moore sculptures and top views. Highly recommended if you're into walking.

Monsal Dale, Derbyshire

Beautiful rolling countryside reminiscent of downland and wolds.

Cromford Mills, Derbyshire

Richard Arkwright's mill and birthplace of the factory system. Just down the road from Matlock.

Tissington Trail

Walking and cycling route to the south of the National Park. By the extremely popular Dovedale.

Bakewell Tart, Derbyshire

Bakewell is a lovely place worth exploring on your way to/from Chatsworth House. Bakewell Tarts are a must if you're there!
