Christmas in Castleton

About

Christmas on the most popular short walk in the Peak District (10 km / 6 miles).
Clear your head and get in the Christmas spirit on this fabulous walk as part of a small group and led by a professional guide.
We start out from Castleton with an easy walk to the foot of Mam Tor. We then follow the old abandoned road and paths with a steady climb of about 270m (900ft) up to the top of the famous Mam Tor (or Shivering Mountain) at a height of 517m. From here we'll experience "one of the top ten views in England".
Next we follow along the Great Ridge towards Hollin's Cross, from where we continue along the ridge to Back Tor for another great view point. Leaving the ridge we drop down towards Castleton.
After the walk you're free to enjoy the remainder of the afternoon amongst the wonderful Christmas lights, cafes and atmosphere in Castleton.
This walk is also available on weekdays on request for groups of 3 or more.
