The Slopes – opposite Turners Memorial, The Crescent and off Terrace Road and Hall Bank
These Grade II listed Georgian landscaped gardens with trees, walkways and The Cenotaph at its centrepiece offer attractive views of Buxton with it’s gently raised ‘slope’ at the centre.
Thought to have been designed and laid out by Jeffry Wyatville c. 1818, who worked at the time for 6th Duke of Devonshire. The Slopes were once known as St. Ann’s Cliff.
Ideal for watching entertainment during summer, a brisk lunch time walk or a picnic in summer. Large crowds traditionally congregate here on Buxton Carnival Day to watch the procession.
You can enjoy superb views of Buxton’s other iconic buildings – The Crescent, the Dome and the Opera House.
Open to public 7 days a week.
