Peveril Castle

Market Place
Hope Valley
S33 8WQ

From the inspiring remains of Peveril Castle - high on a rocky outcrop - there's no more spectacular view of the Peak District. Gaze over Castleton and Hope Valley from the top of the renowned square tower, perched above the dramatic Peak Cavern Gorge.

This was one of England's first Norman forts, its massive walls made famous by Sir Walter Scott in Peveril of The Peak.

This site is a marvellous place for a picnic or family outing. Lovely gift shop on site.

The castle is now in the care of English Heritage.
