TMS’ Guide to Hillhead 2014
This year sees the return of the Hillhead exhibition in Buxton, allowing quarry operators and other users of heavy plant and equipment from all over the world to present their latest innovations in plant, equipment and materials.
With our head offices based in Buxton, A M Bromley, manufacturers of the innovative Tire Monitor System (TMS), is very much looking forward to Hillhead 2014, and our team will be in attendance across the show to meet with customers old and new to catch up over a coffee.
In anticipation for the show, we’d like to present our Guide to Hillhead and Buxton, welcoming you to our town here in the High Peak.
Are you staying over?
Buxton is bustling with a range of fantastic places to stay whilst you’re at Hillhead 2014.
If history is your thing, then we recommend a stay at Buxton’s Old Hall Hotel. Situated in the centre of the town directly opposite the beautiful Pavilion Gardens and Opera House, The Old Hall Hotel is reputed to be England’s oldest hotel and once home to Mary Queen of Scots herself. This three star hotel offers an award-winning breakfast for all guests and each of its 38 bedrooms is uniquely decorated in-keeping with the history of the hotel.
One of the best aspects of Buxton is the vast range of restaurants and tea rooms – there’s literally something for everyone whatever you feel like eating.
No.6 The Square offers light meals or traditional English afternoon tea every day, using locally produced ingredients and a selection of fine beers and wines. The tea room was recently named the winner at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards for Tea Room / Coffee House of the Year.
Across from the Square you’ll find Buxton’s Green Pavilion, a delightful attraction showcasing a range of beautiful plants and flowers from across the world with a small and friendly cafe. The café provides fantastic food and great coffee, with a vast selection of homemade jams, preserves and chutneys.
Take in the sights
Buxton is known as one of the UK’s leading spa towns, thanks to its natural beauty and refreshing water. There are many places to visit if you get the opportunity between Hillhead 2014.
Pool’s Cavern at Buxton County Park is a short drive out of the main town and a must-see for anyone visiting Buxton. Explore the vast limestone caverns and see how crystal stalactites have lined the chambers over millions of years. A tour of the cavern will take approx. 20 minutes with entry all day from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
The Pavilion Gardens are also known as the Jewel in the Crown of Buxton and the High Peak – and for good reason too. The Grade II listed visitor attraction is a great free day out, situated in 23 acres of beautiful gardens ideal for a picnic of a sunny day.
