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. Book a walking holiday on the White Peak Way and immerse yourself in this beautiful region.

Customer reviews from the White Peak Way

“All the breakfasts at each accommodation were excellent and generous.”
Mrs Keane, UK
“Lovely weather for the whole trip. A bit windy on the top of Mam Tor but excellent walking weather. The trip had a variety of sights from the fantastic views from the hill tops to the spectacular scenery of the various dales. Had a really enjoyable walking holiday. There's still a lot of the UK we still need to visit!”
Prof Hood, UK
“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
“Great scenery. Clear instructions. Good accommodation. Exactly what I was after. B&B’s very accommodating and good locations. Friendly back office staff. Everything went smoothly.”
