The beauty of Buxton

Referred to as England’s leading spa town, Buxton has so much to offer its residents from beautiful architecture and amenities to the stunning Peak District National Park that surrounds the town. In fact, the market town is so beautiful and historic it was recently named as one of the best places to live in the UK 2016 by the Sunday Times.

Beautiful architecture and history is evident all around the town, from the Opera House to the Pavilion Arts Centre, however The Devonshire Dome stands in pride of place. The dome, home to a fabulous spa, restaurant and salon, is even bigger than St Paul’s Cathedral in London and is Europe’s largest unsupported domed roof.

Other popular attractions to the town include the natural springs and the Poole Caverns, while the neighbouring Peak District is ideal for getting out into the countryside. Only a short drive away you’ll find an abundance of scenic walks and nature parks, including Grin Low Country Park and the Limestone Way which runs through the whole county of Derbyshire.

When in Buxton you are never short of somewhere to go for a spot of pre-theatre dining, a lazy lunch or traditional pub grub. Award winning establishments for food and drink are easy to find and there’s a broad range of styles from Spanish tapas and French bistros to Thai and Italian Seafood. There really is something for everyone, whatever their taste.

For those looking to commute to places of work, a train service operates hourly to Manchester, and nearby Macclesfield has direct services to London. The M6 lies less than an hour away to the West, or travel East and the M1 is also located within an hour’s drive.

For residents with children, the city offers an array of quality schools including Buxton Community School and St Thomas More Catholic School, which both have been praised by OFSTED. There is also a wide choice of primary and pre-schools all within close proximity of the town.
