Festival Walk: Spa and Empire

Mon 10 - Fri 21 July 2023

This event has now sold out, however you may be interested in the following book events:


Take a stroll with creative historian Gertie Whitfield and Discover Buxton Tours through the vastness of the British Empire recorded on the headstones of those who came to seek health in a small provincial spa town high in the Derbyshire Hills.

This walk will take you back to the 19th century when visitors flocked to take the waters. You will hear some of their family stories and the intimate lives of the citizens of Buxton often at a vulnerable time in their lives.

Strictly limited to 15 people.
