How to Spend a few Hours in Buxton
by Pepe  21 Apr 2015
It's about a two hour walk there and back from the railway station in Buxton to Solomon's Temple on top of Grin Low. This is one of Buxton's famous attractions - on your way you'll pass by the delightful opera house and the beautiful Pavillion Gardens, a large urban park. At the end of the park, go up Temple Road. There you'll see the trails up Grin Low. We took the yellow trail from here (half an hour up, the easiest route) and the green trail (slightly longer) down. Great views from up top - and a good town to explore down below afterwards. Linkback:
