This unspoilt small town has a mainly Georgian feel with many fine buildings including the Old Gaol and Town Hall built during this period. Visitors often enjoy strolling along the tight interwoven
streets leading to and from the parish church of St Peter & St Paul. A lovely way to explore the heart of the town is by following the beautiful riverside walk which gently meanders alongside
the River Ouse.
The landmark building in the centre of Buckingham is the Old Gaol, which is home to the information centre and fascinating museum and souvenir shop. The Heritage Trust who manage the
building were recently awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant for the development of the educational facilities within the Gaol.
Shopping in the town is a pleasure. There are many small independent
traders offering a cheerful, friendly alternative to the hustle and bustle of town centre shopping. Craft and antique shops sit happily alongside bookstalls, florists and jewellers all nestled
neatly into the town centre. Add to this a tempting array of places to eat and drink, some beautiful parks plus free car parking and you must surely admit that Buckingham is well worth a visit.
