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.

    The magnificent Chatsworth House is a palatial home in the heart of the Peak District, which dates back to the 16th century. Today, the lavishly adorned interiors house a significant collection of art and treasures that span more than 4,000 years: from ancient Egyptian sculptures and pieces by Reynolds and Rembrandt, to contemporary portraits by Lucian Freud. Don’t miss the incredible gardens – cultivated over centuries, they contain sculptures, a rock garden and a maze.

  • The Bakewell Pudding Shop

    A landmark within the quaint town of Bakewell, the old Pudding Shop offers a selection of freshly baked goods as well as the eponymous pudding. Handmade using a closely guarded recipe, this shop has been home of the original Bakewell Pudding since the 1860s.

  • Haddon Hall

    This fine, fortified medieval manor house enjoys uninterrupted views of the beautiful Peak District countryside. Parts of the house date back to the 12th century, and the property is surrounded by stunning terraced gardens bursting with rose blooms. The romance of the atmosphere here means that Haddon Hall is a popular choice as a film and television location.

It’s known as the home of the unique semi-precious stone Blue John, a lovely gem with bands of blueish-violet that can only be found in the Peak District. Ladybower Reservoir sits amongst the stunning scenery of the area, with wonderful views of the woodlands, water and moorland.
