Introducing Castleton

Nestled in the shadow of 517m-high Mam Tor and crowned by the ruins of Peveril Castle, the neat little settlement of Castleton has a couple of narrow lanes with sturdy gritstone houses and colourful gardens, and a good collection of cosy country pubs. Oh yes – and about a million tourists on summer weekends. But don’t let that put you off. Come here at a quieter time to enjoy good walks, and marvel at the famous ‘showcaves’, where a semiprecious stone called Blue John has been mined for centuries.
