French Connection - Shopping and Reading in Buxton

Hargreaves and Sons Buxton

The Portland Hotel has a comfortable, cosy lounge, a great place to relax after breakfast or after a long day’s walking in the Peak District. A feature of the lounge is its Trompe-l’oeil or ‘trick of the eye’ ‘library’ wallpaper. Many visitors are convinced at first sight that it is an authentic wall of books.

As we are  keen on shopping and reading we decided to find what the town had to offer as a retail experience and in particular a good book shop.

St Anns Well Buxton

We were keen to find links in Buxton to our home country, France.

Buxton has a hidden treasure. It’s been there for centuries, it’s natural, under its earth and that treasure is Water. This water fell as rainfall onto the Peak District landscape some 5000 years ago. It is now filtered, bottled and sold all over the world in sparkling and still form.

Ballet Buxton opera House

When we secured our internship at the Portland Hotel in Buxton we searched for places to see and visit. Top of the list was the Buxton Opera House.

Once again we were pleased to see the Buxton Opera House was so close to the Portland Hotel. Only 200 metres.

Buxton Cinema

This is the first of our blogs that we hope you find of interest as we describe some of the interesting places to see and visit in Buxton and the surrounding area.

Our arrival into Manchester was just after Christmas. We caught a train from the airport into the centre of Manchester where we enjoyed shopping in the extensive retail area.
