If you have a liking for walking festivals, or just like walking, you are sure to enjoy the Peak District's second walking festival, that runs from 19th April to 27th April 2008. It will be one of the largest and most varied to be found anywhere in the country - with a varied programme of guided walks. There should be something to suit everyone, from gentle strolls to long distance walks.
Walking Festivals provide plenty of opportunities to meet new friends, learn more about the countryside and flora and fauna, join in social events and informative talks. Festivals are also a great way to introduce children to walking and the Peak District Walking Festival provides lots of walks for children, but please ask if age restrictions apply when booking. If you are new to country walking and need an incentive to get started, then this festival may be the opportunity to get your boots on.
Many of the festival walks are accessible by public transport.
Visitors are attracted to the Peak National Park both by the rugged scenery and natural beauty of the gritstone Dark Peak, and the the more gentle limestone White Peak with its lovely river valleys. So much so that over 22 million people visit the National Park each year. Only one other National Park in the world receives more.
Although many visitors stay for the day only, lots more both from home and abroad holiday in the Peak National Park and the surrounding area. In fact more and more day visitors are now realising that their visits can be made even more enjoyable, if they take a short break and avoid a tiring journey home on the same day they arrive.
