Surprise View

A level tarmaced car park at the edge of moorland, adjacent to the busy Castleton to Sheffield road (A625). Pay and display, free to blue badge holders; there are three spaces marked with the disability symbol.

Wheelchair path from car park to Surprise View over Hope Valley.

Moorland walks only.

No toilets - the nearest are next to the Fox House Inn, one mile towards Sheffield on the A625 (includes one suitable for disabled people, RADAR key required).

Ice cream van in summer.

The panoramic views from here over the stunning Hope Valley towards Chatsworth House  are breathtaking.

This accessible site was named as one of the best stargazing spots in the country by leading astronomers on the ‘Stargazing Live’ astronomy show so there’s no need to confine your visit just to the daytime!
