If you love nothing more than pulling on your walking boots and exploring the great outdoors, then the Peak District is the perfect place for you. The UK’s first national park is well known as one of the best places to hike in the country, not least because of its endless interesting natural structures. From the intriguing networks of caves to the attention-grabbing limestone structures, there are plenty of interesting places to explore.

You can hop across the picturesque stepping stones of Dovedale, traverse the windswept gorge of Winnats Pass and stop to admire the dramatic rocky landscape of Derwent Edge. Every hiker worth their salt needs to take on the gruelling Pennine Way at some point. The Pennine Way has its roots in the Derbyshire landscape, while the popular hiking spots of Edale, Mam Tor and Kinder Scout all attract thousands of visitors each year.
