Aylesbury Area Guide
This lively market town is steeped in history, and even though it continues to grow it still hasn’t lost its historic charm. With lots of green spaces and a wealth of leisure and cultural activities you can understand why it is the location of choice for many.
Its location makes it particularly popular amongst commuters, especially those working in central London. Around the church you will find mainly Georgian properties including the Buckinghamshire County Museum and the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery. The museum is dedicated to rural life and local heritage, whilst the gallery is a hands-on experience for young people.
Retaining its charm
Owned by the National Trust, the King’s Head Hotel is an old 14th century timber frame coaching inn, and one of several ancient inns in Aylesbury. The town hosts vintage and craft bazaars as well as a farmer’s market.
