In 1951, the Peak District became the UK’s first national park. It covers about 1,440 km² and attracts visitors for the sheer amount of leisure activities on offer. When you spend your holidays in the Peak District you can go hiking, mountain biking, fishing canoeing, amongst other things. Ever since the 16th century, the Peak District area has served as a tourist destination. It reached its peak in the 19th century, when the Victorians travelled to the Peak District for the healing qualities of its water.
