About Buxton

This barely spoilt town offers an exciting opportunity to enjoy a town crammed with beautiful buildings whilst exploring the high upland regions of England's glorious Peak District National Park. Buxton is as enviable for its majestic Georgian Crescents and properties, as it is for its famous Spa water. It is a town surrounded by stunning scenery, graced with amazing architecture, filled with quaint shops, pleasant gardens, has a lovely Opera House and a museum with a fine collection of Blue John ware made from the translucent stone that used to be mined from the famous near-by cavern.

Mineral springs first discovered bubbling up from depths of around five thousand feet, by the Romans, have drawn visitors to the town for centuries. Not only is the water pleasant to drink and bathe in, but it also possesses medicinal properties. The word of these was widely spread by the 5th Duke of Devonshire in the 18th century, it is he who built the elegant Crescent facing St.Ann's Well. He also built a huge riding school and stables which were later transformed into the Devonshire Royal Hospital.

At a height of over 1000 feet this one of England's highest towns, it lies within the shadow of high hills that are worth climbing for the stunning views of this delightful limestone resort.

Buxton makes a worthy place to stay for pleasant break, it has a great tradition of welcome with lovely hotels, inns and some charming bed and breakfast establishments. It rivals Bath for beauty, and where better to try the tasty Spa water than the place in which it was first discovered all those centuries ago.
