We’ve been hit with a bit of a heatwave over the last few days and long may it continue! Of course, there’s bound to be a bit of rain over the coming weeks (this is the UK, after all) but hopefully the good weather will carry on and we’ll be able to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors. If you’re looking for outdoor pursuits in the Peak District, here are just a couple of amazing places to go for a picnic this summer!

Curbar Gap

If it’s fabulous views of the Peaks you’re after, Curbar Gap is the place to go. In summer you’ll be treated by an ice cream van, as well as a French-style coffee vendor, so if you forget the thermos there’s no need to panic. It’s also wheelchair accessible, which is great news for all.

Monsal Head

This is a really famous beauty spot with some incredible views down Monsal Dale and the Wye Valley. You’ll also find the Monsal Trail here, which is really popular among walkers – so bear this in mind if you’re out at the weekend. You’re sure to recognise the railway viaduct as well.

Hollin Bank

Hop in the car and make your way here for a wonderful day out. The scenery on the way to this renowned picnic spot is incredibly dramatic so cameras at the ready – and you’ll be able to sit at one of the picnic tables watching the climbers take on Stanage Edge. What about giving it a go yourself one day?
