The Devonshire Dome
1 Devonshire Road
The Devonshire Dome was built by in 1779 by John Carr of York for the 5th Duke of Devonshire and provided facilities for up to 120 horses and accommodation for the servants and ostlers of those staying in the The Crescent. The Devonshire Dome is now the new campus of the University of Derby in Buxton and Buxton College.
Measuring over 150 feet in diameter, the Dome is bigger than St Paul’s Cathedral in London, and is the largest unsupported dome in Europe. The grade II* listed building is open to visitors as well as students. Why not pop in for a coffee and see this magnificent structure for yourself?
The Dome houses a restaurant, cafe, modern hair and beauty salons and a wonderful commercial spa. Events and fairs are regularly held in the Dome.
