    What a wonderful cavern and tour! Our tour guide Lucas was phenomenal. Extremely informative— I learned so much on this tour— history, caves, prehistory, waterways, bats.. you name it, they know it (and will tell you!). Cannot recommend this place enough. The gift shop is great and the cafe has delicious coffees and treats. Make sure you visit here!

    We never specifically intended to see this park, but we happened to walk through it while exploring the town. It is a fine example of a Victorian park, with a picturesque bandstand and the imposing Octagon Hall. There are a variety of different birds that live here, complemented by the lush plant life and River Wye passing through. It is not a destination place, but one that offers an opportunity to relax and appreciate a marriage between architecture and nature.

    What a great experience in the true pantomime tradition: lots of fun, audience participation and lively singing and dancing. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sleeping Beauty on Christmas Eve. I can see the panto at Buxton Opera House will become part of our Christmas ritual in future. Well done

    The Devonshire Dome is the old stable block from Georgian Times, with domed roof added later. It really is the most amazing space and definitely worth a look.

    St Anne's church is hidden away but is worth seeking out as it is beautiful inside. In the old part of Buxton.

    Visited Buxton on Saturday 9th July for the Well Dressing Festival and Carnival and enjoyed a few hours wandering round the town admiring the architecture and gardens whilst, of course, checking out the dressed wells. Later in the week we returned to find the one missing from our list, up on Market Square, as it had been engulfed by the Fun Fair

    Spa visit only.
    Lovely surroundings, but note there is no parking at the spa, you need to find a spot on a side street.

    Loved the roof top swimming pool. The spa is spread out over several floors, so if you have mobility issues you would need to check out how you manoeuvre around the floors.
    Lovely coffee/cafe area, but you do need to pay up front.
    Would have been nice to have been told this at the start, since belongings were in a locker on the ground floor and cafe is a distance away, so we had no cards or cash with us.

    The pools are lovely and clean as are the saunas and steam rooms
    Lunch was delicious
    All in all it was a lovely day

    Lovely independent shopping arcade, not the usual tatt you find in arcades. Made purchases in Atticusboo and Wild-Olive.

    Pleasant start to a walk from the old station nearby, with cafe and loos next to the car park. Double viaduct so the railway must have been a busy line when open

    I visited Three Shire Head with my friend. It was cold and raining, but it was a lovely walk. We walked downhill, which was a little rocky and slippy. At the bottom was the waterfalls. We did venture up behind the falls, along the river too. Make sure you wear good walking shoes, appropriate clothing and a camera!

    In preparation for a day trip to Buxton, I had identified the church of St. Mary the Virgin as a potential place to visit and, having had this recommended to me by the tour guide that I met whilst in St. Anne's church, I decided to go and have a look for myself.

    Although I found it locked – as expected – it is only a 2 minute walk from St. Anne's church and I was glad to have made the extra effort to get there, so that I could admire the magnificent roof and other fine architectural details.

    Like so many other interesting parish churches that I have visited recently, it is a great pity that obtaining access to the interior is so difficult and this, along with its relatively out of the way location, probably dissuades many tourists from visiting this church.
