The Devonshire Dome in Buxton; now the Devonshire Campus for Derby University, Was originally built in the late 18th century by the 5th Duke of Devonshire as Great Stables to provide facilities for up to 120 horses and accommodation for servants accompanying visitors staying in the Crescent. Nearly a century after the Devonshire Dome was constructed it was converted in to the Devonshire Royal Hospital and eventually in 2001 the University of Derby acquired the Dome to become a campus for the University and Buxton College.
The Devonshire Dome also offers visitors a Fine Dining restaurant or the use of the Spa and Hair Salon which are student training facilities. The Devonshire Dome is worth a visit and only a short walk from the Portland Hotel. Are you looking for somewhere to stay during you're visit to Buxton? Book direct
