Not for the old or infirm when it's raining as it seems to be most of the time in Buxton. In reality this is a modest folly on the top of a hill with a decent view, but to get to the top you have to climb a few very small and slippery steps.

This hilltop feature in the western suburb of Buxton provides stunning scenery, after a brisk 30 minute walk. First through a deep wood, then a last climb through a cow pasture, the exercise is good. You're rewarded with views far across town, and into the hilly distance.

We often take the walk up to solomons temple through grin low woods to enjoy the extensive views from the top of the tower. Plenty of parking on surrounding roads below.

Had a lovely walk from Palace Hotel to Solomon's Temple. Walking boots best for this time of year. 4 adults out for a short walk in wet weather. View from top of hill by temple wonderful. There's a cafe/visitor centre on right as you enter this park.

We walked up to Solomans Temple from Poole's Cavern car park using the yellow route of the Buxton Country Park map.

A fairly gentle walk up from Poole's Cavern. The views from the top were amazing, especially the mist lying in the valleys in the distance.

Dog friendly. Lovely place to walk. Can walk as much or as little as you want. Quite windy so would recommend a coat on cooler days! Take your camera for some great photo opportunities. Visited many times.

Walked through the woodlands - fantastic colours at this time of year, across the field up to the tower. Views from the tower are spectacular - you can see for miles
