This is a new venture which I am sure will do very well and we came across it by accident at the end of the day. What a find! The friendly guide (he did seem to know everyone in the town) was informative, knowledgeable and fun. The journey took you around town and pointed out the important buildings including what to look for in each.
The novelty of the journey was combined with an insightful guide which was the highlight of our trip to Buxton. (you wont reallly know we were travelling in a milk float until it tried to go up hill). This is running on the hour and I would certianly make a beeline for it when I am next in Buxton. Good fun for young and old alike. dont try and go upstairs there is one.

A really nice "tramride" around Buxton (actually its a converted milkfloat!) giving a great introduction to the town and its many highlights. Excellent informative and amusing driver/guide - ours was Ken. Takes in most of the main sites including Pooles Cavern- you can get out there and rejoin later. An original and memorable way of seeing the town! Starts from outside the Pavilion Gardens restaurant (also recommended!) and currently runs on the hour.
