Pip and Parkin, the messenger pigeons, have been busy delivering Christmas cards across Buxton. But they have lost some post in the Pump Room. Can you help them find the nine missing envelopes. And who in Buxton are they addressed to? Suitable for children age 5 and above. Younger children may need adult help. Every child who completes the trail will receive a small prize.
Children from around 4 to 12 years old (siblings can help) with adult helpers. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied at all times by an adult. Well behaved adults are welcome to join in!
Throughout December during Pump Room opening hours. The Pump Room is open 10am - 4pm From Friday 16th December to Friday 23rd December And Tuesday 27th to Friday 30th December The Pump Room is closed on: 24 ,25, 26 and 31 December. The Crescent Experience has the same open hours as the Pump Room.
We always aim to be as inclusive as possible, so these activities are free of charge. However, if you enjoy the trail, and are able to make a small donation per family (£1 to £3) it would help cover costs and support future work by the charity.
We have coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soft drinks on sale at the Visitor Centre and a selection of snacks. You're welcome to bring your own child-friendly drinks and snacks (we just ask that you try to keep things tidy, and take litter with you)
Unfortunately we don't have publicly-accessible toilets at the Pump Room, but the Pavillion Gardens, a 3 minute walk from here, has plenty. If you are visiting the Crescent Experience, there are toilets available for use during the tour.
