The Eastern Moors are found deep within the Peak District and are a truly stunning natural site.
Whether you’re taking your kids for a runaround, want to teach them about the habitat or just want some peace away from the city, this is the place. The site offers access to a network of footpaths, bridleways and climbing edges, all managed by the RSPB and National Trust. There’s an absolute abundance of wildlife to keep your eyes peeled for, as well as the option to ride bikes as you explore the terrain.
Families will have something to enjoy all year round, including events and volunteering opportunities. There are also natural play spaces and picnic benches.
