If history and/or art are your thing then a visit to The Buxton Museum and Art Gallery is a must. As well as permanent collections relating to the Peak District the Museum and Art Gallery also have regular one off exhibitions throughout the year.
Pooles Cavern is another ‘must see’ attraction. Carved out by the ‘River Wye’ that runs through the town the cavern is home to Derbyshire’s largest stalactite.
‘Go Ape’ an adventure / activity centre is situated next to Pooles Cavern.
Solomon’s Temple stands on top of Grinlow Hill above Pooles Cavern and if you don’t mind a walk the views from the top of the Temple are well worth the effort.
On the other side of town and visible from the Temple stands Corbar Cross on top of Corbar Hill. Once again if you like a walk the views make it all worth while.
If you enjoy going to the theatre then you’re in for a treat. The Buxton Opera House hosts theatre productions, musicals, pantomines, concerts and stand up comedians throughout the year.
The Pavilion Gardens is home to Buxton’s Cinema showing the latest films, a leisure centre with swimming pool and gym, children’s playgrounds, conservatory, gift shop and restaurant.
