The heritage centres, museums and art galleries of the Peak District.

Derbyshire human history and culture stretches back to the stone age. There are many local centres that cover this and help the visitor and local to learn and understand exactly what has shaped this rich and diverse county.

Derbyshire has also many connections with art and literature and is a picturesque region of the UK. Naturally this attracts painters, sculptors and other artists to the county, especially the Peak District. There are plenty of art galleries where you can find the work of local artists for sale.

Artists from Derbyshire and beyond also can find tranquil places where they can develop their skills as there are a number of art and photography centres set up in or near to the Peak District.
