Visiting Buxton and the Western Peak District

While Buxton may have originally grown around its famous spa treatments, the town is today an eclectic holiday destination for visitors of all ages.  Many of Buxton’s traditional attractions such as its spa treatments, Pavilion Gardens and Opera House remain, while young guests may wish to visit the Buxton Go-Karting centre or Go Ape Adventure playground.

The Western Peak District is an area of breathtaking natural beauty and rich in local walks and places to visit. Pooles Cavern is a two-million-year-old limestone cave set on the edge of Buxton and a great way to start exploring the local area.

As you begin to extend your exploration of the Peak District, you may wish to visit Castleton and the imposing Peveril Castle. Castleton is home to four distinctive caverns that each offer a truly unique experience for visitors to enjoy. Speedwell Cavern for example, offers a relaxing boat trip on a 19th century lead mining tour, while Treak Cliff Cavern features some truly amazing stalactites and stalagmites. Peak Cavern is simply awe-inspiring as the UK’s largest cave entrance and John Blue Cavern is made famous for its mining of Blue John fluorspar - the rarest mineral in the country. 

Peveril Castle looks down over the village and is an impressive landmark for visiting the nearby Mam Tor Shivering Mountain and Edale - one of the most visited villages in the country. Edale rests at the start of the Pennine Way, making it an absolute must for climbing and hiking enthusiasts.

There really is a dizzying choice of places to visit in and around Bexton and the Western Peak District. Other recommended destinations include Tideswell and its ‘Cathedral of Peaks’; Millers Dale and the remnants of a once major railway station on the Midland Railway Line; and Chinley - home to the excellent  ‘Chippy of Chinley’ fish and chip shop.
