A large part of Derbyshire lies within the Peak District National Park, noted for being Britain’s first-ever national park. One of the most easily accessible parts of the country, an outstanding network of roads and rail lines intersects this region. Considered one of England’s top locations for outdoor holidays, Derbyshire boasts hundreds of fine hotels, restaurants, inns, self-catering cottages, and campsites. Though many hikers, cyclists, and climbers spend most of their time touring the stunning scenery of the famous national park, you can also find plenty of places to visit in the central Derbyshire region, known for containing the burial mounds of Neolithic settlers, dated to about 2500 BCE.
