The UK does a great National Park (15 of them in fact) and this year it looks like families could be visiting quite a few when travel restrictions are lifted.

Staycations are the big UK holiday buzz for summer and people are already booking family breaks all over the country. So we thought we’d get in early-ish with a rundown of some of the original UK national parks and why they should definitely be part of your travel plans when you can do travelling again:

7/7 Peak District National Park, northern England

The Peak District National Park turns 70 this year. It’s the UK’s original national park and still one of the best for walking, climbing, cycling and time-stood-still villages.

Why families love the Peak District

  • Less than an hour’s drive east of Manchester.
  • Over 30 miles of historic railway lines levelled for traffic-free walking and cycling.
  • Exploring Monsal Trail tunnels.
  • More than 1500 miles of walking trails – The Pennine Way starts here.
  • The sensationally wild and dramatic landscape – hint’s in the name.
