BUXTON. A Derbyshire Day Out.

The Pavilion Gardens express, who doesn’t like a ride on a miniature railway?

Well as the temperatures outside bounce around between cold, very cold and really really cold my list compiling for places to visit goes on. Buxton, the Derbyshire spa town has been added to the 2023 list. It’s a rail journey I enjoy, travelling out from Manchester, through Stockport, the urban and industrial sprawl gets left behind as the rain labours its way up the hills and into the Derbyshire Peak District. The town is compact and has a wide range of attractions. It’s a magnet for the walkers who want to lose themselves in the serenity of the hills and the day trippers who want a change of scene for a few hours, enjoy the Pavilion Gardens with an ice cream or a cake and a tea or coffee.

The elegant Opera House, focal point of the Buxton Festival and much more.
Spring Gardens for shops and cafes and handy for the railway station. Though if you fancy a bit more of a walk up the hill along Terrace Road will bring you to the Market Place for a further selection.
The Crescent in the centre of the spa town with a local tour bus converted from an electric milk float.
