Edale Visitor Centre, Fieldhead, Edale S33 7ZA 

Located in Edale, this flagship centre of the Moors for the Future Partnership provides a national focus for moorland research and an inspirational experience for visitors to the Peak District National Park.

The Moorland Centre's design and interactive exhibitions reflect its upland setting. It has a living roof of sedum turf, intersected by a waterfall tumbling over glass panels into a pool at the entrance. The turf acts as an eco-friendly insulator, and the building is fuelled by an energy saving ground-source heat pump.

Edale is at the start of the Pennine Way and our experienced team are here to help you make the most of your visit to this spectacular area.
