A gardener’s Paradise. The Pavilion Gardens

Buxton from public to private gardens
A gardener’s paradise
The Pavilion Gardens is a nationally important public park which probably originated as the private gardens of Buxton Hall in the late 16th century.
It is quite likely that Mary Queen of Scots, whilst under house arrest would have walked through them with her ladies.


Discover Buxton Tours offer a series of guided walks with their costumed interpreter Edward Milner throughout the season and over the weekend of the 9-10 June 2018 visitors can also see a series of private gardens on the Buxton Garden Trail.


For the third year running Buxton’s green fingered residents will be showing off their gardens as part of the fabulous Buxton Garden Trail. The gardens vary from very small to landscaped two-acre planted areas, with a range of styles including Japanese, Bonsai based; family friendly; wildlife; woodland; community; cottage and traditional English. The gardeners will be available to offer hints and tips on their areas of specialism.



To find out more about the Garden Trail – if you are interested in putting your garden forward or simply want to visit – please contact [email protected] or call Jo and David on 0796 800 4543. Maps will be available from the Tourist Information Centre, Green Man Gallery and Poole’s Cavern from May 22nd.
