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.

Buxton is one of most popular tourist destinations in the Peak District.

 

Famed for its natural spring water and Georgian architecture. The town was founded by the Romans who called it Aquae Arnemetiae. It was the fifth Duke of Devonshire who put Buxton on the map with development in 1780s – the centrepiece being the Georgian Crescent. The town’s rich history features Roman settlers, royal prisoners, outlaws and noble benefactors.

Visitors to Buxton can fill their own bottles from the permanent flow at St Anne’s Well in front of the Crescent. Luckily, due to filtration through the limestone, there is no sulphurous smell or nasty taste to the mineral water here, unlike many others in the country.

The town’s magnificent architecture also includes The Pavilion Gardens, 23 acres of award winning ornamental gardens including serpentine walkways, children’s play areas, lake and a miniature railway. There is a historic Winter Gardens linking the Opera House with the main complex. The building houses a bistro, Art Café, Gallery in the Gardens with a large retail area and the Tourist Information Centre. Frank Matcham’s admired Opera House is home to the Buxton Festival, which has developed into one of Britain’s largest opera-based festivals, Fringe, and the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival.

The University of Derby’s Buxton campus is set under the Devonshire Dome which is the largest unsupported dome in the country with a diameter of 174ft and open to visitors. Guided tours, a bistro, fine dining and spa and beauty treatments are available to book.
