This is a very nice drive, well worth the look and stop to explore, though parking is very expensive £4 per 2 hours. You can hike up to Mam Tor from here, apparently it takes about 45 min, also they do mine tour as well.

How anyone can rate this spectacular area at anything less than 5 is beyond me for 'any' reason and those that have rated it low due to bad 'weather', need to learn that you don't need sunshine, to appreciate a landscape as amazing as this. My first experience of this impressive pass was as a child and I've visited it... More

Drove down Winnat's Pass, spectacular scenery and an amazing place. The next day took in the views from Mam Tor across to the pass. Worth a visit!

We drove down this steep limestone gorge with sheep and walkers wandering everywhere towards Castleton. Nature at its very best!

Amazing sight. The drive through the pass is breathtaking. We drove from Hathersage up to the Mam Tor through this pass. It was definitely worth the journey.

One of my favourite spots in England, this place is stunning even though it was raining it was still amazing! Be careful of people walking on/near the road (The roads pretty narrow and steep!) Would love to go back one day!

This is stunning, either if you drive or you walk through the pass. It's almost hidden from all approaches, which makes it even more dramatic as it opens up as you climb it.

A real wow moment when you first see this place and though it is only a short pass the views are that spectacular that you will be blown away. You can walk or drive the pass, either way it has to be THE most beautiful part of the Peak District.

I've recently moved to the Peak District and decided to take my bike out to discover the area. We tend to do this without researching, to make it more of an adventure. Well, this pass was a surprise. I asked a fellow traveller to take a photo of us at the bottom of the pass, and he asked if we... More
