Sitting in the central regions of Great Britain is a beautiful place you’d consider heaven on earth. Peak District National Park is a lush geographical area at the southern tip of Pennine Hills and stretches a bit over to the northern parts of Derbyshire county. Peak District is one of those places you thought you only see in movies. Its geographical landscape is breathtakingly beautiful that it doesn’t seem real in photos. You will have to go and visit it for yourself because pictures don’t do it justice. Several period pieces took place and were filmed here, including adaptions of “Pride and Prejudice” and “Jane Eyre.” There are plenty of historic buildings located here as well, so history nerds are in for a treat.
