The Peak District is a delightful national park all year round. Perks change with the seasons, offering everything from isolated hilltops to flourishing markets. Summer is the most popular period to visit, particularly during school holidays (late July to August). The weather is at its warmest, but iconic attractions, like Chatsworth House, can get very crowded. Accommodation prices also tend to rise with less availability. To avoid the footfall, visit during June and September when the weather is equally special. Spring is a preferable period for hikers, offering mild to warm weather to enjoy the scenic surroundings. Winter brings ethereal views but cold and wet weather. Wrap up warm and visit the region's fine historic towns and welcoming, warming pubs.
The Peak District has something for everyone, from relaxing retreats to rigorous hikes. Couples will discover immensely romantic landscapes and richly historic hotels and estates. Many of our hotels serve up award-winning menus that are the perfect end to a couple’s evening. Groups and families will discover a wealth of fine attractions too, ranging from regal estates to pretty gardens. Children, in particular, will adore exploring the ruins of Peveril Castle or heading out on scenic bike rides. While the Peak District isn’t suited for serious late-night revelry, towns like Buxton offer incredible craft beer breweries to sample.

The Peak District enjoys easy access to many major cities and an extensive network of buses and trains. In fact, this is among the most popular national parks in England because it is so easy to get to. Visitors from abroad will find international airports in Manchester and East Midlands, both of which offer onward train travel. Trains connect many areas of the Peak District via the Hope Valley, Derwent Valley, Glossop, Buxton and Huddersfield lines. While buses connect smaller villages, many visitors find cars favourable, especially when exploring the countryside. Summertime travellers can take advantage of the convenient Hope Valley Explorer hop-on bus.
