Those living in Sheffield who like to go walking
in the Peak District will be able to take advantage of a special offer to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the UK's national parks.
Between Monday December 14th and Sunday December 20th, those catching a bus from the city to the countryside can make the most of two-for-one offers on Peak Explorer bus tickets.
This will mean that two people can travel to and from the city on a day trip for £8.80, visiting locations such as Bakewell, Buxton, Castleton, Holmfirth or Matlock.
Such an offer may be well received by those wishing to pick up some hiking gear from the Go Outdoors store in Sheffield, which is within walking distance of the Interchange.
Vice-chair of the Peak District National Park Authority and Sheffield councillor Trevor Bagshawe said: "We thought it would be an appropriate way to celebrate the anniversary by offering people in Sheffield the opportunity to come out to the national park by bus at half the normal cost."
Those using public transport can also get from the city to the national park by train, with the line to Manchester passing through Edale.
This station provides access to the southern end of the Pennine Way and is also the starting point for some walks up Kinder Scout, the highest point in the park at 2,088 ft (636 m).
