Vintage Adventure Tours

Treat yourself to a trip into the heart of the Peak District in a vintage 1929 Model A Ford “Phaeton”. It is the genuine article just as Ol’ Henry intended and the only vintage car in the UK licensed for Private Hire.


Our favourite tour direct from your cabin door is Trains, Tracks and Troglodytes set in the White Peaks. It has everything – isolated country lanes, a stately home, idyllic ruins and even a copper mine. You will be picked up and can experience the thrill of the countryside from the open top car, stop for ice cream, a cream tea or a picnic and pause along the way to take photos and soak up the scenery!


For more information, visit their website.

Paul can take you to the iconic rock where Kiera Knightley stood surveying the countryside in the file Pride and Prejudice! Paul also offers group walks and special interest days including the Peak District National Park Experience Day “Walk the Peak’s Aviation History Experience”.


Our personal favourite and a fascinating insight into aviation history in the Peaks, including the Dambusters.
