Places to eat & drink in Buxton.

The Romans knew all about the healing properties of Buxton’s mineral spas but it wasn’t until the Duke of Devonshire came to town in the 19th century that the place attracted thousands of tourists in search of simple cures. He turned the place into a second Bath and built one of Britain’s finest Georgian crescents, since complemented by an Edwardian opera house and a magnificent Victorian hospital which is famous for its huge dome.

Buxton is invigorating in other ways and is an ideal base from which to explore the Peak District, whether by car, cycle or on foot. Mary Queen of Scots may not have agreed. She was held prisoner at the Old Hall Hotel for a while.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Buxton or surrounding areas.
