Themed Trip: Craft & Cuisine
Are you a foodie? Or a connoisseur? Love handmade and local? Be sure to check out the fine, locally hand-crafted wares at The Arches and Green Man Gallery. Explore the wide range of art at the Gallery in the Gardens and at the regular Arts, Craft & Jewellery Fairs at the Pavilion Gardens.
Taste the local ales of Buxton Brewery at the Buxton Tap House or Stoke-based Titanic Brewery at the Cheshire Cheese. Try Macclesfield’s RedWillow Brewery at Bank for locally made gins or relax with an artisanal, hand-roasted coffee by Buxton Roastery at Simply Thai. The Serpentine Community Farm also grows a selection of produce. Pick up one of their herbal teas on Sundays. And of course, head to St Anne’s Well for a free taste of Buxton water!
Delve into the world of pudding at Buxton Emporium in The Square and find yourself a Buxton Pudding, pick up some hand-made chocolates at Charlotte’s Chocolates and make sure you try a Derbyshire Oatcake before you leave – perhaps one with fruits and honey at No.6 The Square Tearooms. There are regular farmers markets at the Pavilion Gardens and the Great Peak District Fair and Food Festival is every year during October. Bradwell’s ice cream from the nearby Hope Valley is a must-do on a sunny day; available in the Pavilion Gardens.
If you don’t want to arrange this yourself, let Discover Buxton Tours introduce a selection of local produce all whilst learning about the history of the town on their Eat, Drink & Walk Tour.
Stay at a local bed and breakfast, such as the Griff Guest House, Alpine Lodge Guest House or Compton Guest House, and dine at the rustic South 16 or continental Bar Brasserie followed by drinks at Bar Renée next door or rustic Gilbert’s on the High Street.
