Fodor's Review

Caves riddle the entire town and the surrounding area, and in the massive Peak Caverns, rope making has been done on a great ropewalk for more than 400 years. You can still see the remains of the 17th-century rope makers' village. Some trivia to keep kids amused: the Peak Caverns were traditionally called the "Devil's Arse," due to the flatulent noise that water makes when draining out of the caves.
