Discover Derbyshire

The Peak District lies in the north of Derbyshire. Forming the southern part of The Pennines, the area is full of hills and moors. Ideal for walkers, hikers, climbers and cyclists, the area offers a range of outdoor activities for visitors. There are a variety of trails and paths for horse riders as well. For those seeking more thrilling adventures, opportunities for rock-climbing, abseiling and caving are all possible with the rocky, grit stone surfaces within the district. If you want to experience The Peak District from the air, why not jump into a cable car or try a relaxing hot-air balloon ride around the area? To experience the landscape head-on, there are all sorts of gliding adventures, from the traditional to paragliding and hang gliding - ideal for daredevils! Surrounded by nature, there are many opportunities to see all sorts of animals hidden in the hills and valleys, including birds of prey, highland cattle, sheep and woodland wildlife such as foxes. 

The National Forest is another of Derbyshire’s enchanting places to visit for nature lovers. It combines ancient woodlands with new planting sites and is an on-going environmental project. At the heart of the forest is Conkers, a visitor centre which is suitable for the whole family, offering tree top adventures, nature trails and great ways to explore the area. There is also a Fairy Labyrinth for the little ones to get lost in and if you visit on a rainy day and prefer to stay indoors, there are a range of pubs, restaurants and cafés which are full of amazing local produce. 

Historical sites can be found all over Derbyshire. Derwent Valley Mills, a World Heritage Site, commemorates the rise of industrialism in the county. It runs from Masson Mill in Cromford, to the Silk Mill in Derby. A great venture for fans of history and the rise of industry in Northern England. Wingfield Manor, in Alfreton, boasts of late-Gothic architecture. Its Great Hall and High Tower are wonderful sights, striking against the beautiful backdrop of the countryside. For lovers of stately homes, Lyme Park with its grand gardens is a popular attraction made famous by Pride and Prejudice and Chatsworth House is unmissable. For those looking for more ancient history, the Arbor Low Stone Circle is a great stop. The site of the stones is a magical and mysterious place which offers panoramic views of the county. 

From nature to history and stately, opulent homes, Derbyshire offers a unique experience. The National Forest and The Peak District National Park offer great holidays for those wanting to embrace the natural environment and beautiful landscapes of Derbyshire. Alternatively, the city of Derby has many opportunities for those seeking the buzz of city life.
