London to Derbyshire

We're going to be in England for 7 days, mostly in London, but would like to do some hiking as well. This is a mother/daughter trip and my youngest is interested in the Derbyshire area. Would a car be necessary? Or, are there alternative areas closer to London that would be recommended?

Peak district is great for hiking!

IMO you would fare better with a car, however it can be done by public transport.

Phil-the-bus is THE expert on all matters bus, especially in the Peaks, PM him or repost on the Peak district forum, with a relevent title, I can be pretty certain he will help....

The South Downs is the closest National Park to London and has some lovely walking - not especially strenuous, and wonderful views at some points . You can get there by train, although to maximise walking time in the nicer parts you could consider a short taxi ride from the station.
