Buxton in December (beginning)

Recommended for a stag night (Saturday night).

We're not looking for hard core raves, just a few good busy pubs and a couple of night clubs that will be open reasonably late.

Couod anyone advise if this is the right place to go for this? Main thing is that its lively on a saturday night.

Buxton claims to be the highest market town in England (or Britain). In December expect short days and cold weather. It may snow.

And my experience (which may be a little out of date) was of a rather quiet place at any time.

I would suggest that you either go west to Manchester or east to Sheffield. Both have a guaranteed lively night life.

To be honest, I don't think that anywhere in the Peak District would fit your specification !

Suggest you stay in Manchester and visit Buxton as a day trip if you particularly want to go there, although as David says, December is not the time to see Buxton at its best.
