A beautiful theatre and a good show. It might not be the biggest theatre but what it lacks for in size it makes up for in character and charm.

Standing beside the Pavilion Gardens and close to the Crescent where the Spa is undergoing major restoration. Look out for the matinée shows during the summer appealing to children.

Enjoyed a great night at the Buxton Opera House watching Dara O’Briain. It is a lovely old theatre, the auditorium is a delight to behold and the seats are comfortable. Definitely worth a visit!
