About Buxton

Described as ‘the gateway to the Peak District National Park’, Buxton is one of most popular tourist destinations in the Peak District, famed for its natural spring water and Georgian architecture.

Voted as one of the best towns in which to live by the Sunday Times, Buxton is a picturesque spa town built on 25 acres of serene parkland, approximately 960 feet above sea level.

The town was founded by the Romans who named it Aquae Arnemetiae, and its rich history includes Roman settlers, royal prisoners, outlaws and noble benefactors.

With direct rail links to Manchester and 40 minutes away from the M1, M6 and Manchester Airport, Buxton is surrounded by miles of stunning locations and action-packed activities, such as pot holing, caving, rock climbing, horse riding and much more.
