Known for its beautiful countryside and historic houses, the county of Buckinghamshire has a wealth of things to see and do. For instance, The Chiltern Hills are ripe for explorative days out in Buckinghamshire, with miles of footpaths rambling through beech-wood forests and alongside momentous waterways such as the Thames and Grand Union Canal.
But it’s not all about being active; just as much fun can be had exploring the Chiltern Open Air Museum, while Waddesdon Manor is a must-see for lovers of fine art and architecture and gardens. For families, children will be enchanted by Bekonscot Model Village.
Beaconsfield has a thriving performing arts scene. It is home to the National Film and Television School and is regularly used as a filming location. There is also plenty to whet the appetite in Beaconsfield. Beaconsfield Old Town offers a wide range of restaurants, there are lots of traditional coaching inns now with modern menus, and food from around the globe. A thriving farmers market takes place on the 4th Saturday of every month. Then to work off all those calories there are walks and rides galore in the beechwoods surrounding Beaconsfield, with numerous small hamlets and great country pubs.
The town is divided into two separate and distinct parts - the old and the new. The attractive old town, is flanked by former coaching inns and old buildings. Despite modern traffic, Beaconsfield still retains a village atmosphere and there is a bustling market held every Tuesday.
