About the trail

From the Georgian streets of the old spa-town of Buxton, the White Peak Way dips through seven distinct dales of the Peak District National Park. It clambers along ridges and traverses gritstone edges, wanders the green grounds of Chatsworth House, follows riverbanks through tranquil valleys, and even explores the rock chambers, tunnels and steps carved by an eccentric Victorian vicar. Historic villages such as Bakewell and Youlgreave also add to the character of the area, with their distinctive pastries and traditions, giving this walk a well-rounded, charming atmosphere throughout.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to walk the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Customer reviews from the White Peak Way

“It was very well organised (thank you). I enjoyed the variety of the walk. I felt that there was a good mixture of walking in the dales and gorges and walking on the hills. The towns and villages were picturesque but not overly quaint. The people were friendly.”
Mr Bakes, UK
“Fabulous break and the logistics were all seamless - thanks! I will be back for another holiday - hopefully with friends in tow!”
Dr Sprague, UK

Mrs Locke, USA

Mrs Krause, Germany
“A really excellent walking holiday made even better by superb weather.”
