PEAK DISTRICT ATTRACTIONS

Why not take a cable car ride with sweeping views that you'll never forget. Go Ape on a high wire adventure course in the treetops, step back in time to marvel at ice age "rock art" or take a spectacular subterranean journey in one of our famous caverns. If historic houses are more your thing then we have one of the best in the country here at Chatsworth.  You'll soon discover that there are hundreds of things to do in Derbyshire and the Peak District - something for everyone to enjoy!
