Mini guide to Buxton


Buxton, the highest town in England, is nestled in the heart of Derbyshire's Peak District. It has been a popular tourist destination for centuries due to its world famous Georgian spas, as well as its fine architectural heritage, burgeoning arts scene and picturesque natural surroundings.

The Romans were the first to take advantage of Buxton's warm mineral water, with the baths turning the town into one of the hottest travel destinations during medieval times. Buxton Museum and Art Gallery documents the history and geography of the Peak District through art, craft, local history and photography exhibitions. Poole's Cavern is an impressive natural cave featuring delicate stalactites and various crystal structures.

The Crescent features a beautiful Georgian façade with numerous historic buildings including the Town Hall, built in 1888, the Natural Bath Building and a stunning Edwardian Opera House. On the banks of the River Wye is Pavilion Gardens; built in 1871, it boasts exquisite Victorian landscaping.

The town offers a number of restaurants including Chinese, Indian, Italian and Spanish cuisine, as well as several cafés and pubs. There are also a generous number of specialty shops, shopping centres and a traditional market on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Situated nearby is Chatsworth House, a beautiful regal building that has been home to the Earls and Dukes of Devonshire for around 400 years; while Haddon Hall, built in the 13th century, is one of the finest examples of a medieval manor in England. The Derwent Valley is popular among hikers and boasts some excellent scenery, while Arbor Low is the most important Stone Age site in northern Britain.

Buxton is around a one-hour drive from the M1 and M6 motorways, as well as from the cities of Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby. There are frequent train services to all major regional centres and London's Euston Station. Coach services are also available; while the nearest airport is at Manchester and offers plenty of domestic and international flights across Europe, complete with connecting bus services to Buxton every 30 minutes.
