University of Derby Survey

University of Derby and Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust have a long and productive relationship. Before the Trust even opened the Crescent Experience and Buxton Visitor Centre, Derby students were busy behind the scenes researching customer trends within the local tourism industry. 

Some of the very first guides in the Buxton Crescent Experience were University of Derby students delivering what has become the premium 90-minute tour. The relationship continues today with a collaborative partnership which allows students to gain real life consumer data and The Trust an insightful research into the motivations for a visit.

This month you will find University of Derby students at our site asking customers about their experiences. Another student is interested in feedback on the website and would really value your thoughts. If you are interested in taking this five-minute online survey please follow this link

Our Premium Guided Tours set off in the morning, where you can dive deep into the rich history of our area aided by our warm and wonderful hosts.

For those who prefer to discover at their own pace, the Experience opens to Self-Guided visitors at 1pm.

Large group? Or a sensory tour during quiet times? Please contact us and we can help get that arranged.
