VW Campervan Holiday Peak District

Peak District

In 1951 the Peak District became the first area in the UK to be designated as a National Park. This was following a decades-long campaign to be granted the ‘freedom to roam’ for the public.

The heritage of this area isn’t solely rooted in this campaign however. The Peak District also boasts world class cultural and industrial heritage sites, from evidence of ancient human settlements to museums cataloguing Victorian industrial innovation.
Putting aside the historical significance of the region, there are also plenty of fantastic walks, cycling trails and pubs to explore.
