Peak District

Heritage & history amongst the wonders of nature

The forces of nature that formed Britain’s first National Park can be witnessed in the beautiful ridges and dales of Derbyshire’s Peak District. Renowned for its inspiring landscapes and stunning manor houses, smooth boulders are stacked against the velvety folds of the hills, and ancient stone villages sit by burbling rivers. This region also has a rich industrial heritage, which is epitomised in the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield. Sheffield is an engaging mix of contemporary attractions, cultural gems and historic architecture.
