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

United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path: 420 reviews and 440 photos

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.
