Hotels in Buxton
Inhabited since the Roman period, Buxton rose to prominence in the Georgian period, when large numbers of wealthy holidaymakers travelled to the area to enjoy its warm spring waters, which were already well known for their excellent healing properties.
The town expanded significantly in the late 19th century, when the opening of the railway in 1863 encouraged the building of many new residences in the area and led to a population boom. Indeed, during the 19th century, many of Buxton's most recognisable landmarks were built, including the Natural Baths, the granite Solomon's Temple, otherwise known as Grinlow Temple, and the opulent Palace Hotel, one of the finest Buxton hotels.
What to see:
Buxton Museum and Art Gallery
Another attractive 19th-century landmark, the Buxton Museum and Art Gallery showcases the area's archaeological and geological past, and features a special 'Wonders of the Peak' exhibition detailing the history of the area over millions of years.
Approximately two million years old, Poole's Cavern is also known as Poole's Hole and has been a show cave since the early Victorian period. The site, which was probably inhabited as far back as the Bronze Age, is now a popular visitor attraction, although archaeologists have yet to fully explore it.
Buxton Opera House
The enchanting Buxton Opera House was built in the Edwardian period and benefited from a new Pavilion Arts Centre in 2010. The site is the venue for the popular Buxton Festival in the summer, and still holds regular operatic performances, pantomimes and musicals throughout the year.
