Buxton was built as a Spa town & is situated at a higher altitude than Tideswell & approximately 7 miles & about 15 minutes drive from The Old Toffee Shop. Regular bus routes link directly between Tideswell & Buxton if you want to leave your car at home.
Buxton was modelled on Bath & Cheltenham with its elegant sweeping semi-circle of The Crescent designed by John Carr of York built in 1784. Buxton is now a small market town with shops to explore & having cultural experiences at Buxton Opera House & Arts Centre, beautiful 23 acres of Pavilion Gardens in the heart of the town to walk through & a large dome which is now part of the University of Derbyshire to explore.
St Anne’s well is still a source of the famous waters & you can see local people queuing up to fill containers with the tepid water.
Weekly Markets, shopping arcades to explore, Well Dressing ceremonies, Christmas Market, Festivals & the opportunity to listen to the Tideswell Male Voice Choir at Buxton Opera House will tempt you from Tideswell.
