Buxton Crescent Museum
Buxton, United Kingdom
Experience 18th century England in a Georgian spa town
Sick people have been coming to Buxton for many centuries, in the hope of being cured by the purifying effects of its warm water springs, known as St. Ann’s Well. Your journey through time will quite literally have a flying start, with a flight over the breathtakingly beautiful Peak District in a hot air balloon, one of the most recent inventions of the day. Afterwards, you will discover what Buxton looked like in the 18th century: just a few houses, and the majestic Crescent, complete with reconstructed stables! You will also learn about day-to-day life in the spa town and its baths, as well as confronting the stark contrast that existed between rich and poor.
This mobile VR experience takes place in a themed space, in a reconstruction of a hot-air balloon that is also accessible for people with mobility difficulties.
As an alternative, a 2D version with subtitles can always be viewed in this space.
