In the very centre of England lies the Peak District, and in its very heart lies the Peak National Park. Britain’s frst national park was created 60 years ago to safeguard and preserve this beautiful region for future generations and for its locals and visitors to enjoy now.

As well as the many local farmers’ markets, which sell a huge range of high quality local produce, including award-winning ice-cream, cheeses, meat and fresh produce, the area has its fair share of world-renowned products such as Bakewell Pudding, Ashbourne Gingerbread and Buxton Mineral Water – enough to give you a real flavour of the Peak District! Food lovers with an eye for the finest local produce should look out for pubs, cafés, hotels and restaurants displaying the Peak Cuisine symbol, which signifies that their menu carries at least one dish whose main ingredient is sourced locally.
