Derbyshire

A national park with craggy hills, sweeping dales, mysterious henges and swathes of dense woodland. This East Midlands county is all about the great outdoors. Walk the moors and tors of the Peak District and stop off in market towns Bakewell and Buxton to try the mouthwatering tart and mineral water. Explore Chesterfield's vast medieval open-air market and canals. Lavish stately homes span centuries amid acres of parkland. Saddle up for bike rides or horse rides on shady National Forest pathways.
