Activities and things to do in the Peak District - Something for everyone from easy walking and golf to paragliding and rock climbing

The Peak District National Park offers the walker a large network of footpaths, lanes and trails mostly established long ago by the area's inhabitants in travelling from their farms, churches, mines and markets.

The natural beauty of Dovedale and the Manifold Valley alone draw some 2 million visitors with queues forming at the famous stepping stones near the southern end of Dovedale at the busiest times. However avoiding bank holidays and sunny weekends, it is still possible to enjoy a ramble even here in relative peace.

Other areas are less well known and with a planned route, a map, and a pair of walking boots are just as exciting to explore and often far more rewarding.

Cycle hire centres present the a perfect way to see Derbyshire and the Peak District with well maintained, affordable bikes and an extensive network of traffic free, easy riding routes.

All the centres have some, or all, of a range of cycles suitable for use by people with disabilities, including tandems, trikes, duet wheelchair cycles and hand cranked bikes.
