The Buxton Crescent Visitor Experience is dedicated to celebrating the town’s spa heritage and thermal mineral waters. Following the recent lockdown, the brand-new attraction reopened on Monday 17 May 2021 and Buxton residents can be among the first to enjoy the new audio-visual attraction, get a look inside nine rooms of the recently transformed Crescent building and give feedback on the new experience by participating in a dedicated survey.
The immersive experience moves through a series of themed rooms, meeting some of the characters along the way who visited Buxton over its thousands of years of rich history. From Roman times when a settlement was built around the warm-water spring, through to its grand and gracious Georgian and Victorian spa seekers who came to bathe in the healing waters – to the present day concluding with a delve into the story of Nestlé Waters’ bottling of BUXTON® Natural Mineral Water.
