Enjoy your stay in a charming Buxton holiday cottage
Buxton's natural scenery has attracted visitors to the town for decades. Along with the outdoor activities to be pursued in the hills of the Peak District, the town itself offers numerous cultural attractions. Stay in a Buxton apartment or traditional stone cottage and spend your holiday exploring the area.
Buxton culture and heritage
Start your stay at the Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, where visitors can learn about the town's history, as well as see exhibits made from the unique rocks and stones found in the Peak District; artefacts made from marble and the famous local mineral, Blue John (also known as Derbyshire Spar), sit alongside a mock up of a Victorian scientist's study.
The smaller Gallery in the Gardens, located within the beautiful Pavilion Gardens, is an exhibition space for local artists. Buy yourself a souvenir to take home or simply browse the local talent. Theatre lovers should check out what shows are on at the Victorian-era Buxton Opera House, or go and see a contemporary performance at the Pavilion Arts Centre.
Head for the hills
Take the kids out to the Peak District hills for some fresh air and to explore the scenery and impressive natural viewpoints around Buxton. Head underground at Poole's Cavern, one of the largest networks of caves in an area which is dotted with caverns. You can take a guided tour that will point out the highlights of the limestone caves, and when you get back to the surface, you can take a stroll up to the Solomon's Temple viewpoint, just for contrast's sake!
A few miles north of your Buxton cottage, the Chestnut Centre is home to otters, Scottish wildcats, and pine martens, as well as birds of prey including owls. Send the kids on the treasure hunt around the centre while you sit back with a coffee.
The area hosts a number of cultural festivals throughout the year, and if you're coming into town for one specifically, be sure to reserve your Buxton accommodation early! The calendar starts with the Buxton Festival of World Cinema in April, featuring films from around the world screened in venues all over town. Further highbrow cultural fun can be had at the Buxton International Festival of Opera, Music, and Literature, which takes place each July.
The town even has its own Military Tattoo, held in August inside the Devonshire Dome. Watch performances from some of the finest military bands from the UK and further afield. The unusual and colourful Buxton Well Dressing Festival take place each July; the practice of well dressing or decoration is unique to the Peak District and dates from Roman times, though the festival itself only started in 1840.
