Things to do at Padley Gorge in the Peak District & Derbyshire
You'd be hard pushed to find a more magical spot than Padley Gorge. With gently flowing streams and tumbling waterfalls in a woodland setting near the Longshaw Estate and Grindleford, Padley Gorge is photogenic and full of character. Unsurprisingly, it's also surrounded by great walks and is a popular spot for picnics and paddling.
Padley Gorge is just 1/2 mile from the National Trust's beautiful Longshaw Estate. It is between the village of Grindleford and the A6187 road.
You can park at Grindleford and scramble up Upper Padley, or at Surprise View car park. Cross the road and head through the rocks until you get to Padley Gorge.
Alternatively you can park at the Longshaw Estate and take a flat path, way marked trail route past the pond and down to Padley Gorge. This is a lovely family walk
