This guide gives a good overview of the Peak District. really liked the features of different circular walks, drives or cycle routes that you could do in each area (with recommended places to eat, see etc).
Gives quite a lot of detail on each area and has nice 'end of chapter' suggestions of highlights for particular areas with places to see, eat, thins to do and events in the year.
Only criticism would be that it is not really critical of any area, so we did waste a couple of trips going to see towns that weren't really worth it (and seemed to give equal weighting to some areas that were far more interesting/ beauitful/ unusual) whereas another travel guide (like rough guides) actually gives more of a critique of an area which is a bit more useful if you are on a tight timescale as we were.
Esp. highlights, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton (and mines) and Bakewell (which is beautiful)

We bought this book as, although we go to the Peak District at least twice a year walking, we haven't really visited the usual places people would probably go to. As we are taking our parents next time, and they are not up to walking miles over peaks and down dales, we thought this book would be useful as a starting point. It has surprised us just how much there is to see and because of the way the book is laid out it is very simple to find things.
We would highly recommend this book - we even bought another copy so that our parents could have a copy themselves !

I bought this to get an idea of what's where etc in the Peak District ahead of a week there at the end of August. I wanted to get a heads up because it's sucha big area, and although i have a rough idea of the things we want to do and places to go I'm well aware that in such a large area there's bound to be loads more of interest.

It's a well written, although slightly too "rose tinted glasses" for my personal liking, and the suggested walks with directions and maps look really good and well thought out and planned. And they give warnings of difficult sections of a walk, Steep climbs or slippery slopes after it rains etc.

All in all I'm glad to recommend this book.

Gives a brief summary of places to visit in different areas .Good map at back of book & great OS type maps in content to follow set routes on bike or by foot.
Down sides are that it s not very visually attractive but then I love DK book guides so I'm spoilt .
We uses it on a 4 day road trip with short walks & managed very well to see what we wanted but probably missed feature of some areas
I sugest you read it well before you leave then reference to it when there.

A very clear and informative guide with a comprehensive index. Good local info and tips+hints. Made a weekend trip to Edale a broader experience than it otherwise would have been. Recommended.
