Places to see
The Dark Peak is packed to the brim with stunning scenery and majestic wildlife.
These are just a few of the wondrous places to visit in this area of the Peak District which are available whatever the weather.
Visitors range from walkers, cyclists and climbers, to artists, writers and astronomers.
Kinder Scout is an expansive wild moorland plateau that provides a truly unique experience to any adventurous visitor. It has a significant history as it is the place that saw the Mass Trespass in 1932.
A haven for any outdoor adventurer, the scenic valley offers a route up to Mam Tor and the spectacular steep-sided Winnats Pass. Beneath the awe-inspiring scenery lies the intricate system of limestone caves, home of the rare Blue John stone.
Peace and quiet during the festive season can provide food for the soul. Try a downloadable walk and make sure you are well prepared for winter walking; we advise you to check the British Mountaineering Council website for guidance.
Winter is a great time time to get outside and tick off some of the '50 Things. Try winter star gazing from Mam Tor (#27) and if it snows make sure you get outdoors and play in the snow (#15). Look out for animal tracks like the mountain hare across the moors (#34).
