Other Higher Buxton Treats!

The Buxton Tram which stops near the bookshop. You can catch it hourly from 10-5 from the gates of the Pavilion Gardens (next to the Opera House). During the summer we are going to be part of their All Ale and Higher Buxton tour – for more information visit their website: discoverbuxton.co.uk

The Cheshire Cheese - You can drink tea and coffee at the bookshop but if you want something more substantial we recommend The Cheshire Cheese opposite our building. A lovely traditional pub with lots of nooks and crannies, open fires, great beers and ciders and scrumptious homemade lunches and evening meals. More info at: titanicbrewery.co.uk

The Green Man Gallery - On your way back down to town call in at The Green Man Gallery in Hardwick Hall (behind Buxton Museum and Art Gallery). Renovated and run by a group of High Peak artists and makers, the gallery hosts exhibitions and sells work by visiting and local artists and runs an exciting range of workshops for adults and children. They also hold regular musical events. More info at: thegreenmangallery.com

If you fancy a walk after you’ve visited the bookshop, we recommend:
  • St Anne’s Church – Built in 1625, it’s a little gem tucked away at the top of Bath Road and only 30 seconds walk from Scrivener’s.
  • St Mary’s Church – A very handsome Arts and Crafts building on Dale Road with ‘eyebrow’ windows in the tiled roof. About 2 minutes walk from the Bookshop.
  • Poole’s Cavern – "the seventh wonder of The Peak" - a dramatic cave with pillars of limestone and a tearoom. About 10 minutes walk from us.
