Things to Do

Whatever the weather, the town offers something for everyone. From the Pavilion Gardens and Opera House, the Devonshire Dome and Poole’s Cavern, to the shops in four distinct shopping areas, you will find somewhere to eat, drink, swim, ride a miniature train, watch plays or listen to music.  You can even have a tour of Buxton on a “Victorian Tram” or Go Ape in the trees in the country park.

Not only that, but situated in the centre of the Peak District, you are never far from a stunning attraction or wonderful walking. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton Caverns, Lyme Park, Crich Tramway Museum, Carsington Water, the Roaches, the Monsal Trail or even Alton Towers are a short distance from Buxton. And more and more people are discovering that the bus can take them to where they want to go!
