Welcome to the Peak District. Slumbering across the southern end of the Pennines, quaint villages are enveloped between the hills and moorland like something straight out of ye olde England picturebook. Now imagine that during the lead up to Christmas… Buxton brimming with festive decorations and the many stalls at Chatsworth House Christmas Market just waiting to be unwrapped. With rich aromas of mulled wine and Chatsworth’s famous hog roast, along with the jingling lilt of live festive music, this is the ultimate winter wonderland escape!
The Palace Hotel is situated in the heart of the spa town of Buxton. Set in over five acres of landscaped gardens, the hotel offers two bars and a restaurant. The health and leisure club features an indoor pool, gym, sauna and steam rooms (small charge applies).
From a morning pickup in your local area we travel to our hotel in time to enjoy dinner.
Today we head to Chatsworth House. Still home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, it boasts grandiose interiors, a wonderful art collection and 100 acres of gardens. Arguably one of Britain’s finest stately homes, it’s always extra special when it’s all wrapped up for the Christmas festivities with dazzling lights and a sea of market stalls selling hot, mulled cider, mince pies and a wonderful array of gifts and trinkets. Soak up the festive atmosphere of this majestic setting!
After checking out of the hotel, we spend the morning at leisure in Buxton. Known as the ‘gateway to the Peak District’ this Regency spa town offers world-famous Georgian architecture. Think ornamental gardens, a flurry of parks and a curvy Grade-I listed crescent. We then depart for our return journey home.
