The Buxton Crescent
Visitor Experience
Stories of a town inspired by water
Our brand new visitor experience tells the stories of Buxton, The Crescent, its famous water and the many people who came to seek its cure. 

COVID-19 Announcement

Following the recent announcement that High Peak and Derbyshire will be entering into Tier 2 measures, we want to reassure you that our venues will remain open with all our current COVID-19 measures in place.  

From Tuesday to Sunday the High Peak Tourist Information Service will be delivered by the staff in person at the Pump Room, and via email and telephone.  The Buxton Crescent Visitor Experience will also remain open with our pre-booked, timed tickets available for household bubbles of up to six people.

These measures are under constant review, as we respond to the developing situation and any Government advice. Your continued support during these challenging times is greatly appreciated.

You are warmly invited to visit…

the elegant Victorian Pump Room, dedicated to Arnemetia The Goddess of the Grove to take the thermal mineral waters and a trip into the past to find out more about this magnificent space and its history. Rising from 5,000 feet below ground the water is at a constant 28 degrees and has been enjoyed since Roman times. Visitors to the town, who would have 'taken the waters' include Mary Queen of Scots, Georgian aristocracy, eminent Victorians such as Darwin and the Wedgwood family. Then in later years by Vera Brittain and more recently by the many visitors to and performers at the Opera House and Buxton's renowned festivals.
