About

Aylesbury is a bustling market town located just north of the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, in the rich agricultural area known as the Vale of Aylesbury.

Perhaps best known for producing the ‘tastiest’ duck in the 19th century, the town offers both the history and heritage of its old quarter as well as the modern shopping centres and nightlife of a contemporary town.

Aylesbury Old Quarter

Most of the older buildings in Aylesbury are to be found in the streets surrounding St Mary’s Church. Largely Georgian in character, with some Tudor and Jacobean buildings, the Old Town is home to the Kings Head Coaching Inn, the County Museum with the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery and the 18th century Prebendal House.

Alongside the old and traditional, Aylesbury offers modern shopping centres and has a fantastic selection of places to eat.  At the top of Market Square, and through a linking thoroughfare, is the Kingsbury area, which has become home to a cafés and is perfect for al fresco dining.
