Introducing Peak District National Park
Britain's first national park is a diverse landscape, comprising heather-dappled moorland, murky limestone caves, gentle hills and gritstone outcrops. For the energetic, there's a huge choice of activities to do from walking, cycling and horse riding to climbing, caving and paragliding. Within the national park are a number of cultural gems including the sumptuous stately homes of Chatsworth house and Haddon Hall and the Georgian architecture of spa-town Buxton. The peak district is also home to the famous Bakewell tart.
