While Bakewell is famous for its tart, Buxton is building a firm reputation in the baked-goods department for its pudding. The gooey-sticky treat is based on a revived 200-year-old recipe combining custard, pastry and jam, and was served at a dinner given for the Mayor of Derby in 1868 along with Mock Turtle Soup and Tipsy Cake. Today, the number one place to sample a slice yourself is the Buxton Pudding Emporium, which showcases the Original Buxton Pudding as well as a range of other handmade cakes, puds and desserts.

You can sit-in at the Tasting Rooms or we suggest you devour a takeout portion on the lawns of the Pavilion Gardens just outside. As its name suggests, however, the Emporium is primarily a shop and sells far more than just cake. Find a wide range of artisan products upon its shelves, including Abernethy Butter, black garlic ketchup, pickled samphire and Sheffield Honey, as well as themed hampers if you’re perusing for gifts.

This foodie paradise is nestled in one of the charming arches at the base of The Square, a grand Grade II listed Victorian building in the heart of the town just along from The Crescent. It’s neighbour to No. 6 The Square tearooms, where a generous Afternoon Tea is served, but maybe don’t combine a visit to both in one day…
