Celebrating the Peak District National Park

Posted by Dominic Lee on

Each week over the coming months we will be celebrating the UK's wonderful National Parks and we're kicking things off with the Peak District National Park.

The Peak District became Britain's first national park in 1951, having played a central location in the history of the national parks movement, including the Kinder Trespass of 1932.

With it's rugged hills and moorland, gritstone edges, spectacular caverns, reservoirs, rolling dales and charming villages, the Peak District is a true national treasure, attracting millions of visitors each year. Indeed it remains one of the UK's most popular national parks, helped by its proximity to cities like Manchester, Sheffield, Stoke-on-Trent and Derby.

Some of our own favourite days out in the Peak District include climbing Mam Tor, scrambling along the Roaches or cycling up some classic climbs such as the Cat & Fiddle and Winnats Pass.

Check out @peakdistrictnationalpark on Instagram or www.peakdistrict.gov.uk for more information about this beautiful area, including places to visit and things to do post-lockdown.
