The building is very impressive and the info on the walls is interesting. It is free to enter and the cafe is ok.

Went into the Dome for the Buxton Tattoo and an antique show - both were brilliant. The setting is absolutely interesting and a fantastic place.

Visiting Buxton, I was looking for the Opera House, I saw the Dome and assumed that I had found it. I went inside and was somewhat puzzled. In this immense open space there were no seats, no foyer and no stage! I enquired of a...More
