An Introduction to Buxton
Buxton, the Gateway to the Peak District is a historic spa town, and it has something for everyone, with stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, beautiful parks, quirky shops, top-class theatre, and fantastic dining. Then, for the kids there are caves to wonder at, woodland trails to explore, and a Go Ape experience with thrilling aerial rope walks.
Buxton is situated in a fabulous location and any visitor to the town should also plan to explore the beautiful countryside that surrounds it. Buxton is overlooked by two hills, Grin Low Hill and Corbar Hill. On the top of Grin Low Hill, at 439m high, is a well-known local landmark, a tower known as Solomon’s Temple. A folly built in 1834 to provide work for the town’s unemployed, it was restored in 1996 and is now open to the public. Visitors can climb the spiral staircase to the top of the crooked tower for magnificent views over the town. On the top of Corbar Hill, look out for Corbar Cross, a tall cross given to the town by the Duke of Devonshire to celebrate Holy Year in 1950.
Poole’s Cavern is set within the extensive Buxton Country Park. There are numerous country walking trails through the 100 acres of mature deciduous woodland, which link up to Grin Low Hill and Solomon’s Temple.
