Buckingham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Buckinghamshire...

Lying among the colourful meadows of the River Ouse, this famous Anglo-Saxon town was partly destroyed by a fire in the 17th century and subsequently lost its role of ‘county town’ to Aylesbury.

Still full of charm, it has a 13th century chantry chapel and an old jail built to look like a castle.

Castle House was used by Charles 1 to hold war councils.

Stowe House is now a public school but is surrounded by magnificent landscaped gardens owned by the National Trust; Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown was head gardener for 10 years.
