Buckinghamshire has been described as 'one of the most attractive and fascinating parts of the country'.

The county is home to the green and rolling Chiltern Hills that inspired John Betjeman , and to the gently meandering River Thames . There are miles of tranquil country walks in the green Buckinghamshire countryside linking unspoilt villages, gentle canal side trails, beautifully maintained country parks and a multitude of pubs at which to stop for a breather. Offering an intriguing contrast is the new city of Milton Keynes , with its award winning shopping facilities, sweeping modern architecture and home to Bletchley Park .

You can relax and enjoy a day’s sightseeing or shopping in the many unspoilt market towns of Amersham , Marlow , Stony Stratford or Buckingham , where visitors are always assured of a warm welcome. Take time to explore our rich cultural and literary heritage and follow in the footsteps of writers such as John Milton, TS Eliot and Mary Shelley who have all taken inspiration from the county. Filmmakers have chosen Buckinghamshire as the ideal location for many classic movies, including Four Weddings and a Funeral , Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Gosford Park.

Lovers of historic houses are spoilt for choice. Selections include the magnificent Rothschild treasure house at Waddesdon , Benjamin Disraeli ’s stunning home at Hughenden Manor , the 13th century Chenies Manor and the stunning Cliveden gardens high on the banks of the Thames. Family entertainment abounds at Bekonscot Model Village , The Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery and the Chiltern Open Air Museum . For excitement look no further than Silverstone, the home of motor sport, or Xscape, Europe’s largest and newest skiing and leisure complex.
