There's a renaissance happening here in Buxton

No wonder Buxton is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Peak District. In recent years the spa town’s famous Georgian architecture has provided an impressive backdrop to a rich and vibrant growth in a whole range of cultural activities. Add to this the stunning ornamental gardens, a wealth of independent and high street shopping opportunities, an ever expanding choice of cafes, bars and restaurants, and you begin to see why there really is something of a renaissance.

Buxton is known as the Gateway to the Peak District, and it’s a great base for all that the national park has to offer, but there’s so much going on in the town itself that you might find yourself hard pressed to leave!



What's on

On top of our fabulous events at Buxton Opera House there's so much more to discover in Buxton. From the natural wonders of Poole’s Cavern and the country park, to the shops in four distinct shopping areas and a diverse choice of pubs and restaurants, you will find something to inspire you the whole year round. And on top of that, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton Caverns, Lyme Park, Crich Tramway Museum, Carsington Water, the Roaches, the Monsal Trail and even Alton Towers are all within easy reach.
