Discover The Peak District United Kingdom

Britain's first national park is also one of the country's most popular. It's not difficult to see why the park's 555 square miles of near-savage landscape have served as inspiration for some of the country's most famous literary prodigies; from Austen to Wordsworth.

As well as the obligatory hike, Derbyshire offers a variety of activities. If physical exertion isn't your forte (or if the weather is just being, well, typical), the lavish Chatsworth House on the River Derwent houses a unique collection of neoclassical artwork which is worth a visit, rain or shine. Not too far from here is the quaint historical town of Bakewell, from where the famous pastry pudding originated. Before you leave, make sure you take a cable car to the Heights of Abraham for panoramic views of the district.
