Pocket Guide: Buxton

Located on the edge of the Peak District National Park and halfway between the M1 and M6, Buxton is a town built on a mountain spa. While it’s famous today for its natural spring water, its roots can be traced back to the Stone Age, with evidence of settlements dating back around 5,000 years. However, it was the Elizabethan era that really put Buxton on the map. Having established itself as a spa town, Buxton was visited by the likes of Mary Queen of Scots, who wanted to bathe in the restorative waters. Today, Buxton is still popular and visitors come in their thousands to this beautiful town each year. Fortunately, there’s plenty of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Whether you want to stay in a homely B&B, characterful inn or sprawling country lodge, there’s something for everyone.

Explore a Historical Town: Hotels and B&Bs in Buxton

Buxton’s past is reflected in the town’s elegant architecture. Buildings, such as the Devonshire Royal Hospital, Solomon’s Temple and the Pavilion Gardens perfectly capture slices of Buxton’s history, and have no doubt contributed to the town recently being voted as one of the ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’ by the Sunday Times. While moving to Buxton might not be on your to-do list, it’s well worth a visit and there are plenty of hotels such as the Old Hall Hotel and The Portland Hotel within easy access of local landmarks and attractions.

Culture on Tap

The Buxton Opera House is an iconic building. Built in the Edwardian era, it still acts as Buxton’s cultural hub, hosting musical events, comedians, dance shows and theatrical productions. It also acts as the HQ for the Buxton Festival, which describes itself as “a happy marriage of music, opera and books.” There are a number of excellent hotels close to the opera house, including the Best Western Lee Wood Hotel. However, as the festival takes place in the summer and attracts large numbers, hotels do sell out very quickly. So if you’re thinking of going, it’s well worth booking in advance.

Steeped in history, brimming with culture and with excellent shopping and dining to boot, booking a hotel or B&B in Buxton is the best way to get the most from this magnificent town.
