Put yourself in the heart of the Peak District with a good long stay at our handy hotel in Buxton. Derbyshire’s ‘Gateway to the Peaks’ is an attractive spa town known for its rolling countryside, warm springs and Buxton mineral water, which you can sample straight from the source at St Ann’s Well. Also in town you’ll find the Devonshire Dome and Buxton Opera House, while just on the edge is Poole’s Cavern with its extraordinary limestone sculptures.

What to do in Buxton
Visit Poole's Cavern
One of the UK’s best show caves, this huge limestone cavern is colourfully lit to reveal wondrous rock and crystal formations.
Drink Buxton water
You can fill your own bottle of spring water from the permanent flow at St Ann’s Well, which is just in front of the stunning Georgian Crescent.
Be entertained at Buxton Opera House
This exquisite Edwardian theatre is one of Britain’s finest and busiest, with performances ranging from dance and drama to fringe and of course opera.
Marvel at the Devonshire Dome
Bigger than St Paul’s Cathedral, this magnificent dome was built in 1779 for horses and servants and is now the University of Derby campus.
Do the Peaks
It’d be rude not to explore the beautifully rugged moorlands of the Peak District National Park, which surrounds Buxton town.
