A Pint And Proper Footie In The Peak District

A pint and proper footie in the Peak District

Fancy a pint and a proper footie match while exploring the stunning Peak District in England? You’re in luck!

Ted Lasso and Welcome to Wrexham have well and truly put British football on the map.

Nestled amidst rolling hills and picturesque villages our national park packs a surprising punch when it comes to catching English football action. So, swap your hiking boots for football boots (figuratively, of course) and get ready to experience the beautiful game amidst the British countryside.
