SeeBeeThou said::twofin No, it's in the midlands (OK, so it's north to you) and it's surrounded by some of the best biking roads in the UK. It's also almost permanently full of bikers. It's just where bikers go
Matlock Bath is another historic tourist village in the Derbyshire Peak District – a mecca for photographers, bird watchers and geriatric types with handicapped placards displayed in their windscreens, not bikers. The area offers a few museums and some amusements! Matlock Bath even has a cable car to take you up to the famous Heights of Abraham for a wonderful view. Most of the local merchants, restaurateurs, and innkeepers favour the BMW/ Mercedes Benz type of clientele over bikers.
With it being in the Peaks District it is usually clogged with car traffic at the weekend, especially when the weather is nice…not to mention a strong police presence on the roads in the area!
I'll take the roads of Kent, Essex or Wales over the Peaks District any day.
Ah me thinks we have been spoiled!
