The Derbyshire region

The Peak District’s very special qualities are well known to the people who live in the towns and cities that surround the National Park but for visitors from further away, whether from Britain or abroad, the magic of the Peak District is just waiting to be discovered.

A short break, or longer holiday, will allow you to explore some of England’s most spectacular scenery and in the towns, villages and hamlets - amongst the prettiest in the country - you will find a warm and genuine welcome wherever you go. Every taste is catered for and many exciting activities are available.


Matlock and the Peak District offer something for visitors of all ages. Walk through one of the finest national parks in England, visit the market towns or take in one of the many historical properties. For more adventure the area offers mountain biking, water sports and theme parks.

Throughout the spring and summer months the tradition of 'well dressing' can be seen in the local towns and villages.
