Welcome to Pride and Prejudice country
Set in the heart of The Peak District and surrounded by the National Park itself, Buxton is within easy reach of a wealth of visitor attractions. Take a trip to Lyme Park and imagine Darcy as he emerges from the lake. Discover the magnificence of Chatsworth House and Gardens, or take a ride to a bygone age at The National Tramway Museum at Crich.
Stroll through more than 50 acres of unspoilt Derbyshire countryside at the Chestnut Centre, encountering four species of otter, deer, fox, Scottish wildcat, pine martin and a wealth of wild flowers. Haddon Hall, neglected throughout the 18th and 19th Centuries, is a bonus for today’s Peak District Visitors who want to step over the threshold and soak up the atmosphere of the Middle Ages!
And finally, spend a day walking our hills and dales on foot, climbing hard on our grit-stone outcrops, enjoying our single tracks on mountain bikes or seeking a rush of adrenalin doing a whole wealth of outdoor pursuits in this our very own outdoor playground - all within easy reach of Buxton.
