Buckingham is the county town of Buckinghamshire from the ninth century
until Henry VIII gave that status to Aylesbury. Buckingham is a hilly,
mainly Georgian town nestling in a loop of the river Ouse.
It has several interesting buildings, including a curious castle-like construction, built by Lord Cobham in 1748 as a gaol, and a tiny 15th century chapel on Market Hill, which was once a school.
The town was largely rebuilt after a disastrous fire in 1725 in which more than 100 houses were destroyed. The parish church of St Peter and St Paul was much restored by George Gilbert Scott, who was born nearby at Gawcott, where his father was vicar.
Castle House, in West Street, is on the site of a 15th century house at which Catherine of Aragon once stayed.
Buckingham today is a vibrant market town characterised by a fine array of Georgian buildings. It is located in the green heart of England and is easily accessible from many parts of the country via excellent road links.
Home to Britian's first modern indepentant University, the town also enjoys closelinks to the internationally famous Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit and the magnificent Stowe Landscape Gardens.Beneath the gentle exterior of this unspoilt town lies a fascinating history which helps explain why the name of Buckingham is famous the world over.
If you are looking for a light snack or tasty meal then Buckingham has a fine selection of public houses, restaurants and cafes. Short term car parking is free and plentiful, making Buckingham an ideal stop-off point on your tour, a base for touring or venue for a day visit.
