Walks in the Peak District

Country walks and hill walks in the Peak District and other areas of the UK. Detailed walking directions with maps and photographs to guide and plan your walking adventures in the scenic Peak District national park.

Covering 555 square miles, the Peak District is home to some of the best walking that England has to offer. The first of Britain’s national parks, much of the Peak District is criss-crossed with footpaths, bridleways and byways, plus large areas of access land to wander.

Divided into two distinct areas, the “Dark Peak” is noted for the Millstone Grit sandstone and high peat moors in the northern section of the national park, and the limestone plateau of the “White Peak” to the south. Each area has different characteristics, meaning that walks in the Peak District are varied with no danger of becoming bored with the region
