About Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire is the home county of 'Chequers' the country residence of the Prime Minister of England.
The rolling Chiltern Hills, delightful Country walks, unique market Towns and quaint little Villages are just a taste of what Buckinghamshire has to offer. Buckinghamshire is located in the South-East of England, neighbouring the capital City of London. Local Attractions include the 19th Century, award winning Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire County Museum and the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery.

Buckinghamshire's county town is Aylesbury, which is in the south of the county. People born in Aylesbury are often refered to as 'Aylesbury Ducks' which is a reference to the white duck that is native to the area.

Other towns in Buckinghamshire include Milton Keynes, Buckingham, High Wycombe, Olney and Beaconsfield.
Also found in Buckinghamshire is Bletchley Park, a stately home approximately 50 miles from London which during World War 2 was used by British Military Intelligence to break Nazi Germany codes such as the Enigma code. Some of the machines they used and other historical equipment from that era can still be found at the park today in the museum there.
