Buxton Visitor Centre

Welcome to Buxton’s Visitor Centre at the Pump Room, providing you with information on great places to visit and experiences to enjoy in our town, the beautiful Peak District National Park and High Peak. Find out more about this lovely historic building, indulge in some retail therapy in the gift shop, and drink the famous thermal mineral water straight from its source.

It's the ideal place to book your tickets for the brand new Buxton Crescent Visitor Experience. Opening on Tuesday 20th October 2020 it will tell the stories of Buxton, The Crescent, its famous water and the many people who came to seek its cure.

The elegant Grade II listed Pump Room has a year round evening events programme and is also available to hire for private functions and events.
