Castleton is a beautiful village situated in the Hope Valley, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Surrounded by hillsides and overlooked by Mam Tor (the shivering mountain) and the ancient Peveril Castle, the village is popular for it’s show caves, Blue John stone, history, shops, Christmas lights, walking and the annual garland ceremony in May.
Our visitor centre has been fully refurbished in 2017 and is now the premier visitor centre in the Peak District National Park, with exciting new information displays, a dedicated space for Castleton Historical Society’s museum, improved retail area, an area for activities, as well as a new café.
You'll find a warm welcome for people of all ages and abilities, particularly those living with disability, wheelchair users, families with young children or elderly relatives. We also encourage visits from school, youth and community groups.
Come and enjoy the exciting digital interpretation displays including the interactive wall – the first time this technology has been used by a national park. Experience the Castleton story as told by our friends at Castleton Historical Society (CHS) and their artefacts. You can get a taste of the area too as you'll find that our new café uses local products and local food suppliers.
