Where to go on your Peak District Pub Tour

Join us time and time again. Each area has a new adventure.

The Peak District is mighty big! With an expanse of 555sq miles, it is impossible to navigate in a matter of hours or on one of our standard 4-hour pub tours.

That’s why we base our tours in five distinctive regions within the Peak District.

We’ve outlined what makes each area unique and highlighted great Pubs within the region. However, this is very much your tour, and you can head in any direction you want to go. The Peak district Pub Tour team is very much hear for advice and suggestions on what works for your group pub tour.

We’ll always have a planned route with more pubs than you could visit, and how many of those you see is up to you.

Please remember that having a meal at one of the pubs during your tour will always slow things down a little, and we also have to allow for travel times to each pub.

We’ll always try to accommodate specific requests. Simply pay for a basic tour and tell us about the extras you want to add on following the initial booking, or ask us for a bespoke quote prior to booking.

We try to make the Peak District Pub Tours available to everyone, however some level of mobility is required to get on and off the minibuses. If you need specially adapted transport, please do let us know and we will try to accommodate this. The nature of our pub tours is such that you choose the venues (with our help, where needed). As such, we’re unable to comment on the accessibility of each venue. If someone in your group has a particular disability or requirement, we recommend the route be pre-planned so that access can be checked in advance.

Many of our clients choose to incorporate a meal as part of their tour. We recommend this is booked in advance, either through us or with the pub directly.
