The Peak District is the second most visited national park in the world. The area is characterised by wild rugged landscapes, pretty villages, grand historic houses and dark caverns.

Traditional stone Peak District Cottages, an imposing mountain, show caves and an atmospheric ruined Norman castle. The nearby ancient village of Hathersage has associations with both the legend of Robin Hood and Charlotte Bronte’s famous novel Jane Eyre and also makes for an interesting stop.

Alton Towers the UK's most popular theme park with great rides including Nemesis, Oblivion, Air, Rita and Thirteen. Only 4 miles away!
