Travel Tips for Buxton

Chatsworth House

by bugalugs

Chatsworth House is worthy of a visit if you are in the area. Not only does the Dukes of Devonshire have links with Buxton but this is their family seat.

See my Edensor page

About 15 miles from Buxton on the A6 towards Matlock, then take the Chesterfield Road

Broadwalk

by bugalugs

To live along here you have such lovely views across the Pavilion Gardens. The houses along here were specifically built for the 'gentry' of the time. Sir Joseph Paxton designed these houses in the 1850's.

Cavendish Arcade

by bugalugs

Inside the Cavendish Arcade you can still see the plunge bath where people were lowered into the thermal waters. This was for such things as muscle complaints, arthritis, rheumatism etc. They were probably lowered down by the chair yet there are steps. The chair to me though looks as if it isnt the original one.

Old Court House

by bugalugs

When I saw this building I did not think it looked anything like a court house. It was built by one of the Dukes of Devonshire in 1784 but it now contains some shops. You cant really see put there are mouldings on the walls of gargoyle type figures.

"About Buxton"

Buxton is a spa town in Derbyshire, England which is close to the Cheshire, Derbyshire border at Macclesfield and Kettleshulme. Buxton is described as "the gateway to the Peak District National Park" (true from the west). A municipal borough until 1974, Buxton was then merged with other localities including Glossop, lying primarily to the north, to form the local government district and borough of High Peak within the county of Derbyshire. Buxton is within the sphere of influence of Greater Manchester due to its close proximity to the conurbation.

"The Opera House"

The annual Buxton Festival, Four Four Time music festival, and International Gilbert and Sullivan Festivals are held in the refurbished Opera House.

The Buxton Festival, founded in 1979, which runs for about two weeks in mid-July, is particularly noted for its Handel productions and the presentations of rare operas, with top quality artists and orchestras. Running alongside it is the Buxton Festival Fringe. It is popular as a warm-up for the Edinburgh Fringe, and it now claims to be the largest 'true' fringe festival in the UK and is the second largest Arts festival in the country after Edinburgh, which is itself the largest annual festival in the world.

The International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival, founded in 1994, which runs for over three weeks from the end of July through most of August, is an adjudicated competition among amateur G&S societies and also presents professional performances and fringe events.

Since 2004, the Opera House and the neighbouring Pavillion Gardens have also hosted the annual Four Four Time music festival which sees a wide variety of performers appearing over one week in February.

Buxton has a range of other cultural activities including Screen Buxton, an innovative new film club
