About Winslow

The delightful town of Winslow has a long and illustrious history. It was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The town lies in an outstanding position amid attractive agricultural countryside in the Vale of Aylesbury. A quiet stroll around the town reveals a pleasant market square where you will find the old world Bell Inn and attractive shops.

Many of the town's buildings belong to the Victorian era, this gives Winslow its air of order and harmony. Off the High Street there is a patchwork of narrow lanes crammed with quintessentially English timber-framed houses and pretty cottages. Standing at one end of the High Street is the town's chief glory - the lovely church dedicated to St.Lawrence. Of Norman architecture, built mainly in the 12th-century, the church has lavish decoration and a beautifully carved Jacobean pulpit. There are 15th-century wall paintings and a host of other treasures gathered throughout it's long history. It is a calm, peaceful church in which to spend time looking around and enjoy a few serene prayerful moments.

Circled by many pleasurable towns and villages, Winslow makes an ideal base to explore the beautiful Vale of Aylesbury and take a look at lovely Buckinghamshire.

Tourist Attractions include include: Silverstone Grand Prix course and museum, Stowe Gardens, Claydon House (NT), The River Great Ouse, Wildlife Park and Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.
