What is the venue like?
The Pavilion Gardens is a Grade II listed historic venue with a 152 year history, which superbly shows off the Victorian splendour of Buxton. Situated in the heart of the spa town, it is a beautiful example of the heritage that runs throughout the town.
The main building offers a botanical garden with a fishpond, restaurant and bar, retail area, art gallery, cinema and the amazing Octagon Hall that houses our markets and large events.
We have a venue that is truly a place for all the family to visit. We offer 23 acres of gardens to explore with a boating lake, miniature train, play areas, fountains and wildlife to see – and often run activities alongside our markets, which suit the various themes of the year, such as face painting in summer and a Santa’s Grotto in winter.
Inside the venue, you’ll find our Tea Rooms, Pavilion Kitchen and Ice Cream Parlour, which each offer a delicious range of food and beverages, as well as The Gallery in the Gardens and Buxton Brewery in our Retail Arcade.
The Pavilion Gardens also include various room hire options which cater for every need, from conference meetings to an award show or even a wedding. If you’d like to hire our venue for a private event, contact us to discuss your booking requirements – click here.
