Buckinghamshire, Visitor & Tourism Guide



Hell-Fire Caves and Paradise Lost
John Milton and Benjamin Disraeli, Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild and Capability Brown all lived or worked here. The impressive Stowe Gardens and Waddeson Manor, Hughenden Manor and Cliveden were all fashioned here. It's also the birthplace of modern computing and home to the UK's centre for codebreaking in the Second World War. This is a stunning county.

In South East England. Surrounded by the counties of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. London is to its south east border

Films and TV
An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Chilterns covers a large area of the county and you'll have seen the landscape in countless Hollywood films and UK TV programmes. Having lived in the Hambleden Valley, it's a fine place for walking and when you're there, look up to see the Red Kites circling in the sky.

Olympics 2012
Prime rowing country, Dorney Lake is a host venue for the Olympic and Paralympic rowing events.

Towns and villages
For towns, try Marlow and High Wycombe, Buckingham and Aylesbury. Milton Keynes is close to Bletchley Park. If you want to visit or stay in a village, we'd recommend Hambleden, Stoke Poges and Turville.

Culture and history
Bletchley Park's essential visiting. Then there are The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, Chiltern Open Air Museum, Buckinghamshire County Museum and the River & Rowing Museum. The delightfully named Hell-Fire Caves are 300ft below ground and were once used by the notorious Hell-Fire Club.

One of the world's greatest poems, 'Paradise Lost', was completed in the county at Chalfont St Giles. John Milton's Cottage is now a museum.

Visit Waddesdon Manor, Hughenden Manor and West Wycombe Park. William Penn, founder of the US state Pennsylvania, was born at Beaconsfield.

Nature and the outdoors
Try Cliveden Gardens, the Icknield Way and The Ridgeway National Trail. The Icknield Way is one of the oldest roads in the UK and connects The Ridgeway in Wiltshire/Oxfordshire to the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path in Suffolk/Norfolk.

For something a little different, explore Bekonscot Model Village.
