Like most “Home Counties”, Buckinghamshire is somewhat defined by its proximity to London: many of its towns comprise the London commuter belt, giving the people of Bucks a vast array of employment – and leisure – opportunities.
But while the benefits of London can’t be denied, Buckinghamshire itself offers an array of unique attractions, from Silverstone Race Track to Pinewood Film Studios and Dorney rowing lake.
Most of the population live in large, vibrant towns such as Aylesbury and High Wycombe – both part of the rail network – while smaller, sleepier towns like Buckingham have grown much less due to being further from London and the railway. The county’s patch of the stunning Chiltern Hills offers further respite from the high pace of modernity.
