Laid Back Living
You might be a party animal on occasion, but if your general approach to life is more laid back or you need a break from your hectic schedule, you’ll find plenty of ways to relax in and around Buxton. Using some of your down time to chill out can be the perfect antidote to the stresses of working and studying. With green space and the outdoors having well-known health benefits, Buxton’s location - surrounded by the Peak District National Park, shortlisted as National Park of the Year by Countryfile, and with the 23 acre Pavilion Gardens at its centre - makes it an ideal place to wind down.
From walking some of the UK’s most iconic footpaths through dramatic uplands or gentle rolling hills, to wildlife spotting in nature reserves and relaxing in local parks, let Buxton’s rural setting calm your mind. Or for more spiritual experiences, join in a yoga or tai chi class. No relaxing day is complete without food and drink and Buxton has plenty of laid back coffee shops to refuel in after a hard day studying, working or exploring the local area.
Sometimes it’s the little things in life that matter, so don’t sweat the small stuff and learn to relax in Buxton.
