The Heart of England/Peak District

Located in the heart of England The Peak District National Park is an area of stunning natural beauty with rugged, peat-covered moorlands and magnificent limestone dales.

Picturesque towns and villages sit within a landscape famed for its walking, cycling, rock climbing, fishing, horse riding and a host of other outdoor activities.

For those less energetic the area's rich history, traditional well dressing festivals and the grand stately houses of Chatsworth, Haddon and Lyme Park provide a huge choice of fascinating places to visit. It is the location of Britain's first National Park - the Peak District National Park as well as the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site, the birthplace of the industrial revolution.


The historic market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. It has a long history as a spa town due to its geothermal spring which rises at a constant temperature of 28 °C. It was initially developed by the Romans around AD 78, when the settlement was known as Aquae Arnemetiae, or the spa of the goddess of the grove.

Buxton has some lovely buildings - notably John Carr's Georgian Crescent and the Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham (architect of many of London's finest theatres). It also has a thriving music and arts festival each summer.

The town is easily navigated by foot (if you can cope with the odd hill) and benefits from a direct train service into Manchester. The town is also well served by buses to Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, Manchester and the surrounding National Park.
