Buxton and Eyam

We transfer to the alluring spa town of Buxton this morning for a guided walking tour, including the complex and richly decorated architecture of the Crescent, and the Pavilion Gardens.

We then make a visit to Eyam, known as 'The Plague Village' which was the site of a vicious bubonic plague outbreak in 1665 that lasted for 14 months and killed 260 inhabitants. Learn about the place that stopped the spread of this disease due to the villagers foresight in selflessly quarantining themselves. We enjoy a talk at Eyam Church of St Lawrence, before a visit to Eyam Museum.
