Why visit the Peak District?

Spectacular landscapes

The Peak District is a largely upland area at the southern tip of the Pennines. The Peak District is divided into two distinct areas – the Dark Peak, which is known for its moorland and gritstone edges, and the White Peak, a limestone area of valleys and gorges.

In 1951, the Peak District National Park became the first national park in the UK. A walker’s paradise, the park attracts millions of visitors each year, who come to the region to explore its moorland, valleys and gorges.

A school trip to the Peak District offers students the opportunity to explore one of the UK’s most spectacular landscapes and gain a deeper appreciation of the importance of protecting this environment.

Experience the Great Outdoors

An activities week school residential to the Peak District will give students the chance to experience the great outdoors in spectacular scenery, while having a fun and enjoyable time together.

With its stunning landscapes and outdoor experiences, the Peak District National Park is the perfect destination for students to gain or develop their skills through a variety of different activities.

Explore a diverse area

Your students will love visiting this diverse area and learning more about the history and geography of the Peak District.

Visiting the picturesque towns of Matlock Bath and Bakewell, as well as the surrounding countryside in the Peak District is a great option for a UK school trip.

Some of our most popular visits include the gardens and adventure playground at Chatsworth and the cable cars and caverns of the Heights of Abraham.
