At its Peak

Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, UKThis year marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Peak District National Park, Britain’s first national park. Since 1951, the area’s natural beauty has inspired millions of visitors and those lucky enough to live and work within its boundaries.

The Park Authority hosts regular events throughout the year and this month you can visit the ancient stone circles of Big Moor above Grindelford; join archaeologist, John Barnatt on a discovery of North Lees and Stanage, or spend a day on patrol with a National Park Ranger.

Baslow Edge, Derbyshire Peak District, UKTo gain a better insight into life in the Peak, and to enjoy the region’s many varied attractions and landscapes in greater depth, why not take a short break to explore the Peak District? Over three days, you walk between three typical, yet very individual, Peak villages: Bakewell, Hathersage and Castleton. Explore one the greatest English country houses at Chatsworth; sample the famous Bakewell Pudding; see Little John’s grave, and descend into the magnificent Blue John Cavern.
