    Really great experience with tour guide Eilliot.
    He was very knowledgeable and engaging throughout.
    The cavern is really spectacular to see in all its natural beauty.
    We have a 5 year old daughter and this was her first time visiting a cave. She was a little scared before hand, however I believe Elliots enthusiasm made this a really enjoyable experience for her and she can't wait to do more cavern exploring in the future.

    Base in Buxton for a long weekend break and decided to climb up to Solomon's Temple as the sun was starting to set. Gorgeous views, but also incredible light and the history of the lime kilns. A bit of a climb but doable with an average fitness level.

    Good venue. Lacks lift and not very accessible quite a few steps. It was a shame that the lounge to book and use before the show is up 5 flights of stairs. We were looking forward to using it to make a full evening of it however we went to a local pub instead due to the stairs

    The ground floor bar is tiny for the stalls and the half time drinks were out in the foyer and anyone could have picked up your drink

    Do go and look around before you visit some other attractions, it has a number of exhibits and takes around an hour maybe one and a half to see.

    Really good day out with the kids watching the bangers and coach racing. 20quid an adult, but both kids 3 and 9 were free so not overly expensive.
    On site food wasn't anything to write home about and the bogs had more piss on the floor than anywhere else, but thats the people goings fault not the tracks.
    Plenty of on site parking and ran well.

    An interesting building home to some lovely and unusual independent shops. Beautiful tiled areas and of course the original plunge pool and bathing chair still in situ makes it a bit quirky and unique in terms of a shopping arcade. Don’t forget to look up at the fabulous stained glass roof. I do love Wild Olive and always manage to pick up some lovely soaps either for gifts or as a treat! Don’t miss Beer District either - beer lover’s heaven!!

    Pleasant start to a walk from the old station nearby, with cafe and loos next to the car park. Double viaduct so the railway must have been a busy line when open

    I visited the Buxton Experience with 5 friends as part of a special birthday celebration day for one of us. What a great time we had. Lucas, with Tom guided us through all of the 9 rooms, telling us so much about the history of Buxton and the way the Spa town grew to be so popular. I loved the Wedgewood display of teapots and cups on the ceiling, the interactive displays and the ride in the hot air balloon was particularly spectacular, especially floating over the Winnats Pass, Castleton! It's a really well put together 'Experience' and so interesting to see inside the Crescent after all these years of waiting.

    We have had two pottery lessons with Geoff at Earth Pig Pottery in The Green Man Gallery and we have had great fun. Geoff is a great teacher, supporting us in our “attempts” to throw and make pots and encouraging us throughout. We are achieving wonky pots, and getting seriously covered in clay whilst really enjoying ourselves. We have enjoyed it so much that we have booked some more lessons!

    Just got back from a great visit to the Kart track. Thoroughly enjoying, staff were great and very professional. The track is a decent size and the experience is value for money.

    Great place and the performances not too loud like Cineworld.
    Cineworld adverts so loud we all had to leave until the film came on.
    Went to see 'Get back'Beatles Film. Only criticism the info typed underneath was covered by the screen so couldn't read.
    The toilets by the cinema are pretty grim. Someone left the seat up which is weird as was a ladies only cubicle and the there were heavily stained brown marks all around the seat. put me off eating in the cafe area !!
