Why are English Heritage great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Mentioned in the Domesday survey, Peveril Castle is one of England's earliest Norman fortresses. The keep was built by Henry II in 1176. Displays in the visitor centre tell the story of Peveril as the administrative focus of the Royal Forest of the Peak, a royal hunting preserve since the 11th century. Schools can travel up the hill to visit the castle grounds, as well as venturing inside the keep.

Please note that whilst the visitor centre is accessible to wheelchair users, it is located at the top of a short steep slope which may represent a challenge to some carers and to self propelled wheelchair users
