Shops in Buxton town centre

The main spot for shopping in Buxton is the town centre, which consists of a long road lined with a variety of boutique and chain shops. Here you can find most of the UK’s major charity shops, such as Scope, Oxfam and the British Heart Foundation.

There is also a choice of high quality walking and hiking shops, which are perfect for picking up gear to make the most of the wild surroundings during your stay in the Peak District.

The town centre is also brimming with different cafés from Café Nero and Costa Coffee to individual coffee shops such as Hargreaves. I strongly recommend a visit to Hargreaves, an Edwardian style building and a beautifully decorated café with homemade cakes and locally sources ingredients.

It sits upon a shop where you can buy unique pieces for your home, and the whole building gives off a very friendly atmosphere, making it very popular with locals and tourists alike.
