Peak District


Weather provided by APIXU

Peak District
Visit grand houses such as Chatsworth with its farmyard and adventure playground, or the caverns at Castleton featuring unique Blue John stone, stalactites and stalagmites and even a boat ride underground. There are also stone circles, castles, museums and working mills to explore.

Be sure to try the local oatcakes with Hartington Stilton, washed down with the local brew, followed by a delicious Bakewell pudding for desert. There's a wide choice of accommodation. Stay on a working farm or revel in luxury in a four-poster bed; opt for family self-catering accommodation or get away from it all in an Elizabethan manor.

Come for a day trip or longer - here in the Peak District you'll always be welcome.
