About this image
Built in 1780 to the designs of John Carr, the Crescent was the first ‘resort’ hotel in Britain and was at the heart of Buxton’s aspirations to become a fashionable spa town.
The Crescent was formerly divided into three hotels. St Anne's, at the western end, The Centre Hotel and The Great Hotel at the eastern end. St Ann’s hotel remained open for business until 1989. All are now closed.
