Buxton & Cruise with Festive Lunch 

On this wonderful day-trip to the heart of the Peak District, you’ll be able to explore a truly surprising town, before heading off on a river-cruise with a delicious festive lunch.

Buxton is a charming town, which had been attracting visitors since the 14th century! The magnificent Georgian and Victorian architecture is testament to the town’s heritage as a Spa town, noted for its clear spring water. The gorgeous Crescent, which houses the Natural Baths, and is located on the site of the original Roman Baths, was built in 1780, and is an elegant remnant of a time when ‘taking the waters’ was popular among the wealthy. Somewhat surprisingly, Buxton also has a connection to a doomed Royal figure – Mary Queen of Scots stayed at the Old Hall Hotel in 1573, when she was being held captive on the orders of Queen Elizabeth I. There’s so much more to Buxton than meets the eye, and you’re sure to have a wonderful time exploring before you head to Whaley Bridge, where you’ll board the Judith Mary and be able to relax on a 2-hour cruise, enjoying the wonderful scenery while indulging in a delicious hot roast turkey sandwiches served with roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, stuffing and jugs of gravy followed by mince pies and cream.

The railway was originally built to serve the local mill trade, and is only about 4.5 miles long, but it still has 6 stations to visit, with something to see at every one!

Matlock, the county town of Derbyshire, is a former spa town situated at a sharp bend in the River Derwent, where it turns south to carve its way through the ridge of limestone which bars its route towards Derby. The modern town is divided neatly into two: the main town radiating out from the river crossing opposite the railway station and Matlock Bath spread out along the gorge to the south. Whereas Matlock itself seems solid and Victorian with neat stone houses going in rows up the hill, the Bath has a more frivolous air. Overlooking it all is the gigantic folly that is Riber Castle, built in the 1860s by the same John Smedley who constructed the Hydro.
