Derbyshire UK Guide
(A Guide to Derbyshire & the Peak District
)

Derbyshire's bustling market towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers, offer majestic scenery, and a rich variety of customs that date back from time immemorial. Many visitors to Derbyshire and the Peak District come not only to enjoy the varied and beautiful landscape, but also to experience a blend of heritage, history and family attractions hard to find elsewhere. In Derbyshire you find large country houses, like Chatsworth, Kedleston and Haddon, towns and villages associated with famous people or rare minerals, and crystal clear rivers and streams running through its valleys and dales.


Derbyshire caters for nearly every kind of sport, from rock climbing and pot holing to fly fishing and canoeing on waters surrounded by beautiful scenery. Derbyshire today is perhaps best known for the Peak District National Park, the first to be designated in Britain, in 1951, in recognition of its outstanding and largely unspoilt landscape.
