High Wycombe

About

Buckinghamshire's largest town and one time 'Furniture Capital of England', High Wycombe is a lively, modern location with plenty of tourist attractions & points of interest.

The town centre has some beautiful Georgian architecture, including the Little Market House (or Pepper Pot, as it's often known), and the stunning Guildhall. There has been a market in the high street since medieval times and you'll still find farmer's produce and goods for sale.

You must also check out the Eden Centre that priovides a range of high end shopping outlets iand restaurants as well as a host of leisure facilities including a gym, cinema and bowling alley. 

History and Heritage buffs should also visit National Trust's West Wycombe Park, an elegant country house set in 45 acres of landscaped beauty boasting unrivalled views of the Chilterns countryside.

High Wycombe also has the curious honour of being the only town to weigh its mayors in the annual tradition of Mayor Making. The tradition started to ensure that the mayor wasn't getting fat at the taxpayer's expense!

If you need a little peace and quiet after your shopping trip, head out to the beautiful, serene Chilterns Countryside surrounds High Wycombe on all sides. Situated towards the south of Buckinghamshire, High Wycombe makes an ideal day trip for tourists staying in London.
