Had a walk around the Pavilion gardens, they looked truly stunning in the early spring sunshine, beautiful array of flowers, and trees waiting to burst into flower. Various events in the marquee on selected dates throughout the year. We had a lovely Art and Crafts show this weekend.

Even on a rainy day it is a nice area to walk around. I can just imagine in good weather it must be fantastic. If in Buxton it is a must

Walked into Buxton and through these beautiful gardens which are kept immaculately. A lovely small waterfall in the middle. Some lovely playgrounds for all ages of children. You could just imagine the Victorians taking a turn around this park. Well worth a visit.

A real delight to spend time in this beautiful, well maintained park. Plenty of wildlife live in the park and if you're lucky you can feed the squirrels or ducks and geese by hand. The flower and shrub beds are well maintained with a large variety of plants. Popular for picnics in good weather or a visit to the cafe... More

My other half and I managed to kill a good hour or so here. There's a small indoor section which smells exquisite and has a beautiful fish pond, outdoors the gardens are extensive and there is lots of wildlife to enjoy. Lovely!
