The Heart of England/Peak District

Welcome to the Peak District and Derbyshire, a world class holiday destination at the centre of the UK.

Get right to the heart of things among the internationally-important and specially-protected landscapes in Britain’s first National Park. Then check out our lesser known ‘secret corners’, stretching from Cheshire and Staffordshire in the north and west and Chesterfield and Bolsover our Historic Border Country to the east, right down to the National Forest in the south.

From rugged moorland to rolling hills and dales, and lush meadows to leafy forests, we have some of the country’s finest scenery, just waiting to be explored. And wherever you roam, you’re never far from the superb sports and entertainment facilities, wide-ranging culture and vibrant night-life of surrounding cities like Derby and Sheffield.

Add Hollywood film locations, historic houses ( including Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall), glorious gardens, awesome attractions, world-class theme parks and fabulous festivals – and a host of quality places to stay and delicious local food and drink – and you have the perfect recipe for a brilliant break.


Visit Chesterfield & Bolsover. The Peak District's historic Border Country. Come to the Border Country, where the town meets the countryside, where the Peak District meets Robin Hood Country.

Follow trails and tracks to sleepy villages like Rowthorne hidden among green hills and rippling river valleys and, every now and then, you´ll stumble across a stunning view, a fascinating garden or a stately home or from the majesty of Chatsworth to the Italianate gardens of Renishaw Hall. From Elizabethan splendour at Hardwick past the dramatic hillside ruin of Sutton Scarsdale Hall to the fairytale heights of Bolsover Castle.
