When driving on high roads you’ll find panoramic views across the landscape but when you head downhill into limestone gorges it’s a very different vista. The Peak District towns have their own unique look, with buildings built from local stone and lots of water based activities from the lakes and rivers that run through the area.
The Peak District is a national park – the first, in fact. It’s full of history, and if you like finding out about local history and seeing some of it for yourself then this could be an ideal day trip. This route will see you spending around two hours on the road throughout the day – although you might want to drive some sections more than once!
