About the location

BUXTON

Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

The ultimate in “year-round” appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Originally a Roman spa town, due to the constant 28°C of Buxton's eight thermal springs the town reached its peak in the 18th and 19th Centuries under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire. The Palladian grandeur of today's town was designed and built by this family, including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Visitors continue to enjoy these buildings and gardens, as well as a full programme of events at the Opera House, in addition to the annual Festival of Music and Arts. Close by, walkers and cyclists can enjoy numerous trails and paths, which lead into the stunning scenery around the town.
