He also designed several London theatres, including the London Palladium and the London Coliseum. Attached to the Opera House is the Pavilion Gardens, designed by Edward Milner, covering 23 acres of gardens and ponds.

Buxton is home to Poole's Cavern, an extensive limestone cavern open to the public, and St Ann's Well,by the Crescent which is fed by a geothermal spring.
