In May this year I took a steam train from London Kings Cross to Matlock (peak district) and since then they have opened a 4 mile stretch and run regular steam train trips between Matlock and Rowsley (4 miles).

I can't think of any walks in the Peaks that are reasonably accessible by a push chair, I think a baby carrier is a much more reasonable option there. Also I haven't seen any spectacular things like waterfalls, etc. but I think there are some stone circles (not as spectacular as the Stonehenge though). I did the Nine Ladies walk and it was very nice and ...
