The East Midlands boasts some of the most beautiful countryside in England to include the Peak District, which is home to the magnificent Chatsworth Estate; used as the location for films such as Pride and Prejudice. It’s the birthplace of the world-famous Bakewell Tart, which originates from the picture-perfect Peak District town of Bakewell - an Instagrammer’s dream. The Peak District is also a playground for outdoor adventure enthusiasts with plenty of pretty English pubs to quench your thirst in after a day of hiking, biking, climbing, and more.
The counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, and parts of Lincolnshire make up the region.
