History of the Buxton Crescent Hotel and Spa Baths
The Grade I listed Buxton Crescent is a large complex incorporating spa baths with mineral water provided from a natural spring. The Crescent faces the site of St Ann’s Well, where warm spring water has flowed for thousands of years. The Georgian hotel was built in 1870 to turn the town of Buxton into a fashionable destination for UK travellers at the time.
High repair costs forced the closure of the hotel and bathing facilities in the 1990s. Various projects to renovate the building have started and failed for one reason or another. Work commenced once again in 2015 and hopefully the beautiful building can be restored to its former glory.
The baths will be retained as part of the renovation, and the ornate assembly room will be fully restored.
