Tour company Discover Buxton are delighted to announce that the Palace Hotel are going to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the hotel with an amended version of the ‘Victorian Conversation’ on Wednesday 6th June.

When it was first opened in 1868, the Palace Hotel was set in stunning, landscaped gardens of over five acres, boasted an internationally admired ballroom, croquet lawns and a tennis court. The hotel also provided its guests with hot and cold water in each room, which was revolutionary and an advanced amenity during the late 19th Century. After several years, the hotel became the first building in Buxton to be equipped with a telephone, a feature that was not only a luxury but rare in most hotels across Britain.

Today the hotel still retains a prime position in the town standing guard over beautiful Buxton which it has done for the past 150 years and hopefully will continue to do for many years to come.

The Palace Hotel hope you will visit them on 6th June to see an exhibition of historic images of the building from 3pm onwards and then later, at 8pm, to enjoy a ‘Victorian Conversation’ in the Cavendish Room at 8pm. They look forward to welcoming you throughout their anniversary year.
