Attractions in and around Penistone

General information

Although the big city attractions are within easy reach, there are plenty of local attractions and heritage sites.

Of course, the East Peak region is ideal for walkers and country lovers and the special walking section contains a variety of walks and landscapes to explore.


Some of the attractions are run by volunteers so please check before visiting that venues are open before turning up! As seen in recent years, bad weather can also affect opening times in the area.
