Trains to Edale travel on one of the most scenic lines in England: the Hope Valley Line, which passes through the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District. Connecting to Sheffield in the east and Manchester in the west, it sees plenty of commuter traffic but is also a favourite with tourists and hikers. Edale itself is a charming village full of stone-built cottages, all circled by famous hills: Kinder Scout, Mam Tor, Win Hill, Lose Hill. The village is also the southern end of the Pennine Way. Turn left out of the car park to reach Edale, passing the Moorland Centre, one of the Peak District's main visitor centres. After half a mile, you'll reach a small square with a church, school, cafe and one of the village's two pubs. The other, The Rambler Inn, is next to the station, and is the endpoint of the famous Folk Train, a monthly mobile concert that departs from Sheffield.
