The Peak District covers a large area in the Midlands and is a most convenient national park to visit for people who live around Manchester, in Cheshire, the Midlands and Birmingham.

It is one of several beautiful national parks in Britain. The north of England is fortunate enough to have several including the Yorkshire Dales,  the North Yorkshire Moors, and the Northumberland  National Park, all of which lie north of the Peak District.

The parks are popular with walkers and hikers, people out for day trips and holidaymakers who like to stay for a few days or a week surrounded by pleasant scenery and nature. There are invariably sheep dotted about the hillsides and fields divided by dry stone walls, tumbling streams, waterfalls and during the summer, tourists. Tea shops abound offering refreshment.

A good pair of walking boots is essential. Bring a camera to capture those panoramic views.

Ladies looking to find a man could do no better than to don a pair of walking boots and head for the hills of the Peak District. The majority of walkers are male and usually end up in the local pub in the evening. It’s easy to start conversations whilst out walking, to ask about the terrain, the way, or the ever popular ‘how much further is it?’
