Ilam Park & Dovedale, Peak District

When you’ve lived in the same country for your whole life, you sometimes forget about all of the beautiful places around you, and instead become fixated with other countries. Considering that I am still a university student, and don’t have the finances just yet to jet off to places each month, I have to make the most of what’s around me. The Peak District is not only an outstanding place to visit to see beautiful hills, greenery and wildlife, but it’s an adventure in its own right. A fun, challenging experience, with the option to indulge in a National Trust-standard cream tea at the end.

Along the way, we met several travellers who talked to us about their experiences in South America and South East Asia, it was so lovely to see that these people still enjoy the beauty of the English countryside, and made me realise more than ever how wonderful England really is. Beyond London, England has some breathtaking sights.

We took the dogs along to a guided walk of the southern tip, so it was no where near the whole District, but I wanted to share with you some of the pictures I took along the way. The walk was 5 miles, mostly uphill, which was exhausting for someone like me to never usually volunteers to do such strenuous activity, but I’m trying to change my ways. I’ve just started a new fitness regime where I exercise 3 times a day, and 2 of those involve long distance walking. What better way to go to keep fit, explore and have a road trip, than to go to somewhere like the Peak District?
