The county of Derbyshire which is home to East Midlands Airport offers many attractions for an entertaining holiday. Opened in 1951, the Peak District National Park was the first national park in the UK and, in addition to some 2,900 kilometres of hiking trails, it also offers other outdoor activities such as cave climbing in Thor's Cave. The view from the peaks of Mam Tor and Kinder Scout extends over the entire park, even as far as Manchester in good weather. Other attractions include the picturesque valley of Dovedale and the cable car located in the southeast of the national park which takes you up to the Heights of Abraham.
