I assume this is by public transport? It's easily done, there are buses and trains to various destinations in the Peak District, where exactly are you thinking of going? It's quite a large area so narrowing it down would help us to help you.
Please also tell us what you are interested in - scenery, hiking, cycling visiting stately homes perhaps ?
You might also want to take a look at this website - www.visitpeakdistrict.com - to get some ideas. Once place to start could be Castleton with its famous caves and ruined castle. Buses 271 & 272 run there every hour from Sheffield Interchange (bus station) and you can also use buses 273 and 274 as well - see this page for links to bus timetables: www.derbysbus.info/times/tt_201_999.htm .

Yes by public transport. I tried looking around for peak district destinations and there are so many! I envy those who live nearby and can do many trips there as this might be my only chance. Places like Hope valley and Mam Tor seem interesting.
Definitely more to scenery and hiking (but not extreme ones). Something that a first timer should not miss to see perhaps? Thanks for the info!
Thanks for the link!
You can get buses into Bakewell, and to Eyam as my Mother in law does and meets us, as well as Bamford as well. Or you could get a train to Bamford. There is a stopping train service from Sheffield to Manchester, which stops at numerous stops along the Peak district. I think usually a hourly service Monday to Saturday, less frequently on Sundays.
