Monsal Head, directly above Monsal Dale, is one of the most photographed viewpoints in Derbyshire - and for good reason! The picturesque, postcard vista overlooking the impressive viaduct, with the winding River Wye flowing through the steep dale, it truly is a wonder to behold. It is a good opportunity to stop for food and drink and the Monsal Head Hotel - and there is usually an ice cream van parked there too.

Nice accessible walk even carrying a young child in the walking back pack.
Good walk on its own or an addition loop to part of the monsal trail with a nice pub at the viaduct and a small tea rooms next door.
