The breathtaking hills and crags of the Dark Peak contrast sharply with the chocolate box villages further south. Whether you want to get away form it all and walk on the moors or just explore the delightful towns and villages of the White Peak there is always plenty to do. Visit Chatsworth House, 'The Palace of the Peak' or travel back in time and visit Crich Tramway Village, where you can take a trip on a vintage tram.
The ancient custom of well dressing is almost unique to Derbyshire and the Peak District, and provides a colourful spectacle well worth a visit to one of the many of the towns and villages in the area during well dressing week.

There are picnic sites, refreshments and toilets at all the centres. Car parking is also available and every centre is accessible by bus. For more information, click here.
