A Video tour of the of the Crescent and Natural Baths:

The Crescent was the centrepiece of the Fifth Duke of Devonshire’s plans to establish a fashionable Georgian spa town in Buxton.  The grade 1 listed building is one of the most architecturally significant buildings in the country. The redevelopment and restoration will secure a major investment of circa £50 million in Buxton and put the town back on the national and  international map as England’s leading spa town. The project will  create in excess of 140 permanent jobs, 350 construction related jobs and many more permanent jobs indirectly through new spa-related businesses resulting in a boost the local economy by over £4.5 million. The Crescent and Thermal Spa heritage experience and development of the Pump Room will also provide new indoor attraction for visitors, schools, tour groups and tourists.

Plans for the Crescent include a  80-bedroom 5* spa hotel occupying the majority of the Crescent and which will incorporate the magnificent Assembly Rooms and a  thermal natural mineral water spa in the Natural Baths. The project will also feature 6 retail units in the front ground floor.

The project is estimated to cost over £46 million.   Buxton Crescent & Thermal Spa Co Ltd will fund just under £18 million with the rest coming from the public sector .Crucial to the success of the scheme is a £23.8 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund together with a £2 million grant from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and £0.5 million from Historic England. High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council are each contributing £1 million each.

The developers have identified VINCI Construction UK for the main contract. Now work has started, it is anticipated that the Hotel and Spa and Pump Room will open in 2018.
