Peak District is the oldest and most visited national park in the UK and is justifiably popular with visitors from both the UK and overseas. The area is split into two sections -- the White Peak and the Dark Peak. The former has a very English feel to it and is dotted with picture-perfect villages such as Tideswell, Great Longstone, and Ilam, whereas the Dark Peak has a more rugged feel to it with vast areas of forbidding moorland. Both areas are fantastic for outdoors enthusiasts with numerous opportunities for walking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and caving.

There are numerous fantastic Peak District hostels in popular villages including Castleton, Edale, Hartington, Ravenstor, and Eyam. Each village has its own characteristics and in the spring and early summer there are many local festivities that take place such as Garland Day in Castleton and the Well Dressing ceremonies. Other popular activities in the area include visiting the numerous caves and caverns around Castleton or the stately homes of Lyme Park and Chatsworth House. Try a delicious Bakewell tart in Bakewell or one of the many locally brewed ales in some of Britain's greatest and most historic pubs. Walk on the Kinder Plateau or The Roaches for impressive views of wide-open spaces. Take the cable car up The Heights of Abraham or explore the spa options in historic Buxton. The Chestnut Centre near Chapel-en-le-Frith is a great place for the family to see otters and owls and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen whilst out exploring.

Whilst the Lake District might be more famous, you can't say you've visited England until you have been to the Peak District. So whether you want to stay in a modern hostel, a hostel in an old stately home, or a hostel housed on the grounds of an historical building, visit the Peak District!
