Hartington is a popular village with tourists especially at weekends. It has its souvenir shops and tea-rooms. However it is also the focal point for the northern end of the limestone dales on the river Dove and there is a excellent network of footpaths centered on the village.
The former Hartington railway station, about a mile and half from the village itself, is now a picnic area with toilet facilities and an information centre, held in the former signal box which was retained after the National Parks Authority bought the Ashbourne to Buxton railway in 1968. The track itself was converted into what is known as the Tissington Trail, is popular with both walkers and cyclists.
Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, a beautiful place with its curiously formed cliffs and rocks. There are also several caves. For more information please see Hartington.
