But while Old Glossop itself has plenty of charm, its principle appeal is its location on the edge of the Peak District. The Peak District is an area of great natural beauty and is full of opportunity for adventure in
the great outdoors, while nearby Buxton is an important centre for the art, with many theatre and classical music performances held in the town. Glossop itself has its own small theatre, showcasing the talents of
local theatre groups.
