Peak District Day Trip from Liverpool
The Peak District is Britain’s first National Park. Enjoy incredible scenic views of this unique landscape as we make a short climb to the top of Mam Tor where you can see for miles across the rolling hills. We will also spend our free time in the beautiful village of Castleton – there’s nothing better than relaxing in a cosy English pub with roaring fires after your walk in the fresh air. There are also opportunities to visit Peveril Castle (£5.60) or one of the local caverns (£9-12) – see booking information below. Alternatively, join the guides as we will walk through either Cave Dale or Winnats Pass which are gorges formed during the Ice Age and you really have to see if for yourself (free and no need to pre-book). All in all a spectacular day in the British countryside!
Things have changed since the beginning of 2020 and to avoid disappointment, some activities should be pre-booked if you’d like to do them during your free time in Castleton. We should be in Castleton from 1-4pm. For Peveril Castle, please book here: Peveril Castle Tickets For any of the show caves, book here (Daytripper recommends the Treak Cliff Cavern): Book a cave visit. Alternatively, join the guides for a walk to one of the local gorges.
coach travel with limited capacity for best safety measures
a friendly tour guide
a short guided walk up to Mam Tor
Free time in the village of Castleton
£29.00 – £39.00
We will have a fun walk to the top of Mam Tor (approx. 20 minutes to summit) where we will enjoy incredible views over the Derbyshire countryside. Then we will travel by coach 35 minutes to the village of Castleton. Here you’ll have free time for lunch with further options for walks to either Winnat’s Pass or Cave Dale (incredible limestone gorges typical of the area). There are also opportunities to visit Peveril Castle (£5.60) or one of the local caverns (£9-12) if you wish but these should be pre-booked.
walk difficulty: Moderate, short, steep climb with rocky terrain and uneven steps.
Sometimes things don’t always go to plan and British weather can be changeable. If the guides deem the area to be too flooded, icy or if there are extreme high winds or heavy rain we may offer an alternative to Mam Tor which would be to visit the town of Bakewell – famous for the Bakewell Tart….yummy. We do believe in getting outside and enjoying the outdoors so if it’s simply raining, please come prepared as we will get wet (and have a great time doing so!).
Liverpool Guided Tour
After enjoying a lovely afternoon at Liverpool’s Waterfront with Hannah and other students last week, I decided to book Daytripper again. Hannah and Jean, who was the tour guide for this afternoon, welcomed me cordially.
Jean has an incredible knowledge and also funny information about the city and took me to very interesting places in Liverpool.
It was an amazing afternoon with two humorous girls and I enjoyed it very much! That’s exactly what I would look for in a tour. Highly recommended!
I’m looking forward to the next trip with Hannah and her team. See you soon and thanks a lot
Snowdonia, Castles of Wales and York
I went to Snowdonia, Castles of Wales and York and I loved it!
The places we went were great (especially Castles of Wales). You get to see so much in one day and it’s a very reasonable price.
I will definitely recommend, me and my friends had a lot of fun
Conwy and Llandudno
Went on the Conway castle trip first and since then iv’e been hooked ,really well organised with tour guides that are funny, friendly and knowledgeable. Great way to explore new and interesting places in an affordable way. Highly recommend, you’l make some great memories and good friends.
We went to Snowdonia, beautiful place, the trip was great! Well organized with good and friendly guides! Now I have wonderful memories, thank you guys!
York and the Peak District
I visited differents places with Daytripper Liverpool during my stay in UK. That was such an amazing moment ! All the trips were well-organized with friendly guides !
I have so much great memories from York or Peak district to name a few.
Conwy Castle and Llandudno
What a gem Conwy Castle is! Went on a trip on the 15th of June with Danielle and Naami and despite the previous rainy week we were blessed with some lovely sun which made the trip all the more spectacular! Got to know some interesting facts about the medieval castle and even got to see the smallest house in Great Britain!
Llandudno beach with its puppets show and the opportunity to walk all the way up the Great Orme was worth the visit for sure – a picture perfect day. Not to forget I got to meet some great people who were also on the trip and experienced the beauty of North Wales with me 🙂
Edinburgh, Wales and more!
I was on a few trips with Daytripper last year and it was a blast! The guides are friendly, helpful and informative. There are quizzes on the way to the destinations and all trippers (English, foreigners) have the chance to interact and make friends.
Hannah, the owner and one of the tour guides, is always on the lookout for new adventures and cool places. Everything is well-organized and I believe the trips offer great cost-benefit.
I’m glad to say that I had the chance to go on Daytripper trips before it was a business on its own back in 2013, and Hannah already put lots of thought into the whole thing!
A final plus is that Hannah and some of the guides are English language teachers, too, so foreign trippers who aren’t very proficient in English should definitely NOT shy away – Daytripper is a great learning opportunity!
Highly recommend! Hope I can be back in Liverpool soon to join Daytripper again 🙂
Lake District - Grasmere
Very good! The staff was super friendly. In currently on holidays so this was a perfect opportunity to go on a daily trip. They took us to Lake district and showed us incredible things that definitely we wouldn’t be able to see if we went by ourselves.
Liverpool Coach Tour
I have participated in many activities that Daytripper held at my university. It is very impressive.
Recently, I need held an one day trip in Liverpool for our conference.
Daytripper is the first company in my mind. Now, We have an excellent trip today. Hanna is a very professional, responsible and patient person. She is a brilliant guide, I am very happy to work with her. Highly recommend daytripper!
What a wonderful day trip was this!!! Nice easy walk to the mountain with a view of lakes.
Beautiful photographs! Swallow falls and a lot of travel tips.
Hannah and Michael very professional guides, gentle and pleasant characters. I look forward for my next trip with them. Highly recommended!!!
Thank you Daytripper Liverpool!!!
Lake District (Grasmere)
Last Sunday we went to the Lake District (Grasmere), Hanna is a great tour guide, we had a quiz with awards on the coach to get to know the destination better , brilliant idea! When we get there we had a walk around the lake, the landscape was stunning! Overall there was a nice balance between guided and free time! Great value for money!
Conwy and Llandudno
I have been to three trips with Daytripper, and although all of them have been simply amazing, this one is by far my absolute favourite! There was plenty to see; from a gorgeous medieval castle and city of Conwy to the stunning beach of Llandudno and a short but breathtaking hike up the Great Orme.
This hike was one of the best things I did this year – really satisfied my longing for mountains and spectacular views of the ocean.
There was plenty of time in each location to see everything and take plenty of photos. The walk was accompanied by an amazing tour guide and just the perfect amount of historical and cultural information. The guides are all very lovely, patient and open to chat at any point of the trip!
They really listen to us as well and do their best to provide enough time for lunch, bathroom breaks and souvenir shopping.
Simply amazing! I recommend this 10/10 🙂
Castles of Wales and Oxford
I met Daytripper on my first international trip ever! I am so grateful and glad this happened cause they are great! I like their style of trip because they put you into the history of the places through guided tours and let you free to explore at the same time. Also, they are very organized and kind! Thank you, Daytripper! 😀
Castles of Wales
Thank you very much, very professional and humorous guide and such awesome places. If you want to switch off your mind from normal city lifestyle it’s strictly recommended
Wales and Lake District
I’m from the US and I studied in Liverpool for a term. I was living in the city for about 5 months with a group of other US students. We took a trip to Wales in February and had an amazing time. It was a great way for us to get out and see more and it was very affordable.
We liked that the day was planned out for us, we didn’t have to worry about anything, and we learned so much!! We went on our second trip to the Lake District in May and had another fantastic experience.
This time we brought a friend that was born and raised in Liverpool and had never heard of the tour service. She enjoyed the day just as much as we did and plans to go on more tours! Daytripper Liverpool is great for groups or alone.
The atmosphere is so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Daytripper Liverpool to anyone!!
We are Daytripper. Creating a trip experience, measured not by distance but by friendships, memories and adventures.
