Britain’s first National Park. Founded in 1951 and located in the heart of England, Peak District National Park covers an area of 555 square miles. Though slightly different than national parks here in the United States, the British National Parks still offer visitors beautiful natural scenery, outdoor activities, and historic monuments. Partake in guided walks with rangers over high moorlands, peat bog crossings, caving, world class climbing, visits to a wind-farm, mountain bike rides, and casual walks through wild flower covered dales.
