Buxton, United Kingdom

Regeneration of British spa heritage

Buxton is a spa town, blending views of natural landscapes and historic architecture. Columns, crescents, domes and manicured parks are all the hallmarks of a gentrified lifestyle spanning the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras of the country’s history. 

Now is the time to take a spa break in this jewel of British spa towns as it enters a renaissance following a multi-million-pound renovation of the newest member of the family, Buxton Crescent. This is the town’s only wellness hotel, with its programme of spa breaks for couples, holidays or a spa day for two. 

With a rich history that dates back thousands of years, the Old Hall Hotel now stands as one of the spa town of Buxton’s most popular places to stay, nestled deep in the heart of the Peak District.

High up on the edge of England’s Peak District, Buxton is the gateway to this area of outstanding natural beauty, contrasting rolling farmland, forests and deep valleys with high stony plateaus. This is perfect terrain for outdoor enthusiasts who like to hike, bike and horse ride.

Thermal Waters that attracted the Romans

Buxton’s long, yet intermittent, history as a spa resort began when Roman conquerors discovered warm bubbling springs right underneath what is today the Buxton Crescent hotel, the town’s leading spa break destination. As a result, this spa town has been a focus of aristocratic patronage and health pilgrimage for much of its 2,000-year history. 

  • Mary Queen of Scots came to ‘take the water cure’ to treat her rheumatism. 
  • One of England’s richest men, the 5th Duke of Devonshire, commissioned The Crescent, an exquisite example of Georgian architecture. 
  • Today’s extensive restoration puts the town back on the heritage spa trail. 
  • The thermal waters are now integral to an extensive, holistic spa and wellness programme for visitors.
