Newest Review: ... shops along 'Spring Green' which is a pedestrian only street. We found there were many walking style shops and at the time of our visit they were all having sales competing against each other. On the opposite side of the town hall which is higher up consists of more independent shops and some beautiful pubs. It is here you can find a couple of the oldest pubs in Buxton like the Sun Inn and Cheshire cheese. Also at this end of the town is a shop I loved and had to return to towards the end of my holiday 'Scriveners' Bookshop with what was left of my holiday spending money!. This shop is a must for any book fan. Over five floors ther... more

On a recent camping holiday we (me, my fiancÚ, and two son's aged three and a half and twenty two months) went to the beautiful Peak District and with all our holidays we love to do a bit of exploring of the surrounding areas. We were camping just seven and half miles away from Buxton so did visit this town on a few occasions during our stay, especially since it had a Morrison's on its out skirts. We did however spend a full day at Buxton exploring its many gems as it is well known for its history of a spa town. There is certainly plenty to do in this beautiful town. On arriving in the town by car finding a car park was relevantly easy with good ... Read the complete review

Buxton is an old-fashioned spa town in the Peak District. It has many things in common with other Northern spa towns, such as Harrogate, and tends to be a bit of a haven for the older folks. I can imagine it was once a holiday place for genteel, rich, people, in days gone by, although now it has a slight air of faded glory. * * Relaxing in Buxton ** The most pleasant part of Buxton, in the summertime (or should I say, on a sunny day!) at any rate, is the Pavilion Gardens, an old-style park, which was established in 1871 by Edward Milner. It’s 23 acres, so plenty of room to choose a nice spot for a picnic or to eat an ice cream. The River Wye ... Read the complete review

A population of 20,000…Buxton, the highest town in England, is situated in the heart of the Peak District. It is a good place to be in because it is never lack of beautiful scenery nor well-preserved natural forest reserves. There are as many as 8 short walks around Buxton, many of which only need about 2-3 hours. And you will be well-rewarded with breathtaking views. Being not too-densely populated, there is rarely a traffic jam even in the heart of the town, and you rarely face a problem with parking should you decide to have an outing with family and friends. Buxton boasts of its Opera House, one of the oldest of its kind in the United Kingdom, the renowned .. Read the complete review
