VISIT PEAK DISTRICT FILM LOCATIONS

Visit film locations and step into the shoes of your favourite movie star. Some of the Peak District film locations are beautiful backdrops for Hollywood blockbusters and memorable TV moments.

What I loved about Stanage and being on the tops was the lonely scenery and fantastic views.  You could go up there and pretend you were in the movies - there was a real sense of wide open spaces.
