Welcome to Buxton

Buxton, home of Buxton Water, is a thermal spa town nestled in the centre of the beautiful Peak District and the UK’s oldest National Park. It is not surprising it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, with its stunning ornamental gardens and famous Georgian and Victorian architecture which provide an impressive backdrop to a rich and vibrant range of music, theatre and festivals. With a wealth of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, natural wonders such as Poole’s Cavern, attractions such as Go Ape, Buxton Raceway and two golf courses, there is something for everyone.
