Trains to Buxton weave through the stunning scenery of the Peak District before coming to rest in this delightful Derbyshire spa town. Its rise began in earnest in the late 18th century - 1789 saw the opening of The Crescent, a Grade I-listed building that was to become a hotspot for Georgian and Victorian high society. The adjoining spas have since been redeveloped, but Buxton Opera House, another remnant from Buxton's heyday, still hosts concerts, and stands within the opulent Pavilion Gardens. The stone station building dates back to 1863 and was once part of Buxton's famous double station, shared by the Midland Railway and London and North Western Railway. It was mostly demolished in 1969, but its fanlight window remains, and is often brightened up with flowers and light displays. Find out more about things to do in Buxton. As well as day-trippers coming to see historic Buxton, the station is frequently used by students - the University of Derby's Buxton campus is a ten-minute walk away.
