During the 18th century, Buxton rivalled Bath as a fashionable Georgian wellness resort, attracting wealthy visitors from across the country who flocked to experience the therapeutic qualities of its famous, mineral-rich geothermal spring water, which rises from 5,000 feet below ground at a constant 27 degrees. Today, the long-anticipated opening of the Crescent Health Spa Hotel signals a new chapter in this history, restoring the spa town to its former glory as a leading destination for those in search of a little rejuvenation and luxury.

Built in 1789 and originally housing two hotels, the Crescent building is one of the most architecturally significant in the country, celebrated for its iconic sweeping terrace design. Its £50m renovation took 17 years to complete (with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund) but has been well worth the wait, preserving history and grandeur without foregoing 21st century style and comfort.

The state-of-the-art spa includes three unique places to dip: a fully refurbished, naturally heated spring water Victorian pool with original 1920s wall tiles and an elegant stained-glass canopy; an ‘indoor to outdoor’ rooftop pool with integrated jacuzzies overlooking the Peaks; and a serene ‘relaxation pool’ with a star-lit ceiling. Other facilities include a CO2 mineral bath and Salt Cave (good for the respiratory and immune system) as well as the custom suite of steam rooms, saunas, and therapy treatments.

The five-star hotel is beautifully presented, with an Art Deco style bar, winding marble corridors and a floor to ceiling mural; while its 81 rooms include decadent features such as a grand four-poster bed, cavernous freestanding bath and large sash windows. Doubles start from £125 per night, breakfast included.

Located in the very heart of historic Buxton and overlooking the Pavilion Gardens, the Ensana Buxton Crescent Health Spa Hotel is perfect for a very special weekend getaway, or simply a dedicated day of ‘taking the waters’.
