Being a university student at Sheffield, I had heard so much about Peak District National Park that one Sunday I decided to gather a few friends and go check it out for myself. Peak District is an upland area in Derbyshire. Just about 40 minutes by bus from Sheffield and extremely close to other major cities like Manchester and Derby, Peak District is the ideal destination for someone looking to chill out, especially uni students. If you are the adventurous sorts, there is lots for you to do. You can go cycling, hiking, camping as well as horse back riding at the national park. If not, you can just bring a picnic and enjoy the nature at its best on a nice sunny day while sipping prosecco.
