Planning on visiting Bakewell? Bakewell, a small market town 20 minutes drive from the Portland Hotel in Buxton or about a 35 minute bus ride. Bakewell; idyllically situated on the banks of the river Wye, is perhaps best known for its unique and delicious Bakewell Pudding.

The famous pudding only found in Bakewell

Take a leisurely stroll along the riverside promenade with a fourteenth-century road bridge. Benches along the riverside provide visitors the chance to just sit and enjoy the scenery with a river full of life, keep an eye-out for the Rainbow Trout! Enjoy a ice cream or fish n chips, however watch-out for the ducks and swans.

Are you looking for somewhere to stay during you're visit to Buxton? Book direct with the Portland Hotel for best available rates.
