Buxton: a picturesque town filled with charm and character

While studying at Oaklands Manor you'll be based in Buxton, a lively, welcoming town packed with vibrant personalities and everything you’ll need as a student.

Despite it's size the town is home to a range of perfectly formed pubs, bars, and clubs, and student nights take place on Wednesdays. If you're looking for a bigger night out, or have the urge to explore, Buxton train station is only five minutes from the campus.

Away from the party scene, you'll have the chance to play sports, learn new skills, and make the most of the beautiful locations on your doorstep - particularly the Peak District National Park.
