As you wish! This is a unique experience to visit several iconic locations in the Peak District national park which were used in the 1987 classic movie, The Princess Bride. Re-enact the famous hill rolling scene at the exact spot which was used and enjoy a look around the historic, charming streets of Castleton, nestled below the slopes of the Shivering Mountain, Mam Tor and home to the 950 year old Peveril Castle. Explore the dramatic landscapes at Carl Wark iron age fort, Higger Tor and Robin Hood's Stride, all of which were used in iconic scenes from the film. Enjoy an opportunity to visit the magnificent, medieval manor house, Haddon Hall, which was used as Prince Humperdink's castle. We'll also see where Buttercup's farm was filmed and re-enact the hill rolling scene. The tour also gives our guests a chance to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Peak District national park along the way. We will pick you up at your accommodation or a convenient railway station for that unique, door to door service. And you won't even have to win a battle of wits along the way! Some of the locations require short walks on footpaths which are steep in places and which are rocky and uneven. The tour and scenery can be enjoyed whilst avoiding too much strenuous walking if preferred.
Please note that admission to Haddon Hall is not included and is payable locally.
We would suggest a pick up time of 10am and would expect to return at around 5pm.
