A Day In Buxton – Photography In The Peak District – A Welshot Does… Adventure

What Will Happen

Grab your camera, we are off out for a day in Buxton – Photography in the Peak District is the name of the game this Weekend. Join Welshot for a one day adventure with your camera in the barely spoilt town of Buxton, crammed with beautiful buildings from Georgian Crescents to Opera Houses, Pavilion, quaint shops and historic arcades. Buxton is a photographers dream, architecture, beautiful gardens an stunning scenery if you’d like to walk a little. If you’d like to make a Weekend of it then day two will be about getting into the Peak District National Park and capturing the beautiful landscape and scenery near to Buxton.

Standing between 1,000 and 1,100 feet (305 and 335 metres) above sea level, Buxton is the highest market town in England. The mineral waters have long been famous; they were used by the Romans, who called the place Aquae Arnemetiae.

Whether you are a beginner to photography, a photographer who would like to try a new genre, learn an new technique or skill or a more advanced photographer who wants to build their image portfolio, you will be made welcome and we would love to help you get the best out of your camera.

Just some of the locations we will be visiting with our camera:

  • The Pavilion
  • The Old Courthouse
  • Buxton Opera House
  • Buxton Crescent
  • St Anne’s Well
  • The Fan Window
  • Buxton Station
  • The Square
  • The Old Hall Hotel
  • Thermal Baths – now the Cavendish Arcade, to see past and present nestling together
  • Passing through the Quadrant we stop to see Clowes Pharmacy before heading up to the Devonshire Dome.

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this session to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories.
