Buxton Train Station facilities

Serving the Derbyshire town of Buxton, the station was opened in June 1863. Originally two stations were planned, however, the town council believed that the beauty of the local area would be adversely affected, so the stations were built next to each other. Given identical designs, including locally quarried stone, a wrought iron and glass roof, and beautiful semi-circle fan windows. Although most of the two stations were demolished in 1969, the iconic fan windows have been saved.

Sitting in the heart of Buxton, the station is the perfect place for visiting the heritage and attractions of the area, and with the University of Derby nearby, the station serves nearly half a million passengers every year.
