THE NEW 'WONDER OF THE PEAK' IN BUXTON
When Charles Cotton's The Wonders of the Peak was written in 1681 it was probably the first successful guidebook to the Peak District. Since then visitors have marvelled at Poole's Cavern and St Anne’s Well in Buxton both mentioned in the guide. Now they can journey back in time to experience a bygone age aboard a 'Victorian tram' and relax as knowledgeable guides reveal the historic and architectural gems of the ancient spa town of Buxton.
The tram carries 8 passengers and travels at a top speed of 12 miles per hour.
