This webcam view is overlooking the Town Hall car park, usually a very busy car park, which is open most days except for when the space is required for special events such as the Buxton Carnival or Spring Fair, amongst others.


The town of Buxton has several notable claims... It's well known throughout the world for it's Buxton Mineral Water of course, but there's much more to Buxton town than this. Buxton has the highest market place in England, at 300m above sea level, Mary Queen of Scots was held under house arrest at the Old Hall Hotel, and the hotel itself is the oldest hotel in England. And then there's Buxton Opera House which was built in 1903 and designed by Frank Matcham, one of Britain's finest theatre  architects.

If you're visiting Buxton for a holiday or just a short break, then there is lots to see and do. Great pubs and restaurants, theatre, cinema and activities for the whole family, all perfectly placed in the beautiful High Peak.
