The Heart of England/Peak District
When we first visited the Spa town of Buxton and the stunning Peak District National Park that surrounds it we couldn't understand why we hadn't been on holiday there before!
This vibrant, historic town has much to offer and is ideally located to explore the scenery and beautiful villages of the Peak District. Buxton's famous Opera House and Pavilion Gardens host over 450 shows a year including comedy, drama, opera and family shows. The Pavilions Gardens and Opera House are situated in the centre of town within 23 acres of beautiful, landscaped gardens.There are many craft fairs and markets held throughout the year held in the Pavilion Gardens.
The entertainment is "non stop" during the Buxton Festival which takes place for two weeks in July and there is also plenty going on throughout the summer months. You can get details of the festival and all the events that take place throughout the year from Buxton tourist information.
Buxton country park is a great place for woodland walks and offers an abundance of wildlife along with impressive views over the town and surrounding countryside. For those that wish to discover underground, the stunning limestone caves of Poole's cavern is a must see. The country park is also home to Go Ape- not for those of a nervous disposition, but great fun!
There is also much to do in the surrounding area.
A visit to Chatsworth House and gardens, historic 16th century home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, is a must. Lyme Park and Haddon Hall are also closeby and definitely worth as visit.
The Peak District is a great place for walking and cycling. Feel free to use the leaflets and book in your apartment, detailing walks in the local area. Some of these walks you can start from your holiday apartment, others are from close by villages in the Peak District. Either way there are walks to suit everyone from those looking for a leisurely stroll in the countryside to those looking for a greater challenge. Make sure you make time to sample the refreshments at one of the many independently run cafes you will find in the pretty Peak District villages and in the town of Buxton itself. If you are looking for something more substantial then there are plenty of Pubs selling home cooked food and real ale!
