Things to do

Be spoilt for choice at the Old Hall Hotel in Buxton

The Old Hall Hotel in Buxton is steeped in history and built on the site of a natural warm spring, the location of the original Roman Baths. We are fortunate to be situated right in the centre of Buxton, the elegant spa town of the English Peak District and surrounded by a wonderful land of hill, dales and forests.

Although Buxton is in one of Britain’s most beautiful and unspoilt areas, it is in fact in the central part of England which makes it an excellent centre for tourism with very easy access to most major centres. Many visitors come to Buxton to enjoy the Peak District or to visit Chatsworth House; you’ll be spoilt for choice with so many nearby places of interest.

Discover Buxton offers you a journey through time. Join them on a special experience to explore the history, sights and sounds of Buxton on the back of an authentic milk float or rather Victorian Tram. Come and discover two of the original Wonders of the Peak or three if you count the tram!. Our vintage tram is also available for exclusive bookings such as private parties, weddings and promotional hire. For more information click here.
