Buxton is well known for its architecture. The Georgian Crescent and Thermal Spa is due to open in 2019 following a huge investment and renovation programme on the Grade 1 listed building. Work is on schedule to-date and the site is generally a hive of activity as can be seen from the top of the Slopes, over the safety hoardings below. The Pump Room is to open in early 2019 with the re-location of the Tourist Information Centre from the Pavilion Gardens.
