Monsal Head

Monsal Head

One of the most popular beauty spots in the Peak District, with absolutely fabulous dales scenery.

Strictly speaking not a village, Monsal Head and the beauties of Monsal Dale and itsí surroundings have been popular with generations of visitors. The combination of the winding River Wye in the steep sided dale, with the wooded slopes of Fin Cop and rocky outcrops of Hobbs House, together with the railway viaduct, make it one of the most photographed locations in England.

There are visitor facilities at Monsal Head, with car parks, toilets, guest houses, hotel, pub, cafes and gift shop, it can be a busy place in the height of summer.

The dale itself is for exploring on foot, with the Monsal Trail crossing the old railway viaduct providing a fantastic viewpoint above the riverside meadows.
