French Connection....goes further afield

The railway station in Buxton is just a short walk from the Portland Hotel and there are regular trains to Manchester Piccadilly. The journey takes about 1 hour. Piccadilly is located in the centre of Manchester. 
Another major city that is accessible to Buxton is Liverpool. This takes a little longer by train, about 2 hours with a change at Stockport. In Liverpool there are many attractions based around the Beatles.
For all those fans of the FAB FOUR why not stay at the Portland Hotel on Sunday April 22nd 2018 and see the Bootleg Beatles at the Buxton Opera House? Maybe the following day take in a visit to Liverpool and see where the Beatles grew up and places that influenced their distinctive music.

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.

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.
