"Castleton" United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path Tip by Sjalen

  Castleton
by Sjalen
 
 

In the Derbyshire valleys belonging to the Peak District, you will find the small town of Castleton which is a popular destination for locals but not at all well known to foreign tourists. It is mostly famous for its caves where Blue John is mined - a semi-precious stone used for jewellery and this is also what most people buy as a local souvenir as it isn't found anywhere else.
