A spectacular wonderland of breathtaking scenery

Known as the backbone of England the Peak District National Park, covering an area of 542 square miles of some of the most beautiful and breath-taking countryside to be found anywhere within the British Isles.

This landscape had already undergone many transformations before the dawn of civilisation and has undergone many more since the advent of people, whose influence upon it can be traced back thousands of years. Many hilltops are the sites of ancient burial mounds and the conical shapes of tumbled cairns can be seen throughout the area. A network of dry-stone walls pattern this ancient landscape, and countless moorland sheep graze the upland meadows and dale-sides, whilst many species of plants are unique to the locality and the rich variety of wildlife is hardly rivalled by any.
