The Heart of England/Peak District
Located at the centre of the UK, Buxton in the Peak District has excellent rail, bus and air links and is within easy reach of the country's main motorway network.
Buxton is a spa town in Derbyshire, England. It has the highest elevation of any market town in England. Located close to the county boundary with Cheshire to the west and Staffordshire to the south, Buxton is described as "the gateway to the Peak District National Park". A municipal borough until 1974, Buxton was then merged with other localities including Glossop, lying primarily to the north, to form the local government district and borough of High Peak within the county of Derbyshire. Buxton is within the sphere of influence of Greater Manchester due to its close proximity to the area.
Buxton is home to Poole's Cavern, an extensive limestone cavern open to the public, and St Ann's Well, fed by the geothermal spring bottled and sold internationally by Buxton Mineral Water Company. Also in the town is the Buxton Opera House, which hosts several music and theatre festivals each year. The Devonshire Campus of the University of Derby is housed in one of the town's historic buildings.
Buxton is twinned with two other towns: Oignies in France and Bad Nauheim in Germany.
In the Peak District some of the best attractions can be found in the open air.
Why not take a cable car ride with sweeping views that you'll never forget. Go Ape on a high wire adventure course in the treetops, step back in time to marvel at ice age "rock art" or take a spectacular subterranean journey in one of our famous caverns. If historic houses are more your thing then we have one of the best in the country here at Chatsworth. You'll soon discover that there are hundreds of things to do in Derbyshire and the Peak District - something for everyone to enjoy!
