Castleton village stands at the head of the Vale of Hope at the heart of the Peak District National Park. It is surrounded on 3 sides by steep hills, one of which, Mam Tor, supports the remains of a Celtic hill fort. All the roads and winding paths in Castleton lead to the main street and the village green is flanked by traditional Derbyshire limestone buildings. Although there are six pubs, cafes and many gift shops selling trinkets fashioned from Blue John, it is on the surrounding hills and what lies underneath them that lures many visitors to Castleton. Overlooking the village stands Peveril Castle gifted to William Peveril by his father, William the Conqueror, in 1086. Beneath the hills lie the 4 show caves that just beg to be explored. Peak Cavern lies beneath Peveril Castle and is the largest opening in Britain, celebrating the work of rope makers. In Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern visitors can see the Blue John Fluorspar in its natural splendour. Enter Speedwell Cavern if you dare, a place rich with stories of hundred year old murders. This cave is explored by boat and culminates with a look into the “Bottomless Pit”.
