Named after its former county town which in turn was given its moniker in honour of an Anglo-Saxon chieftain whose people settled in the area that once made up the ancient kingdom of Mercia.
Before the formation of England, Bucks and Mercia stood between Wessex (where King Alfred was already dreaming of a unified ‘Englaland’) and Danelaw (the area ruled by the Danes, who actually were gentle rulers rather than the hairy fighters history depicts). This middle ground made Buckinghamshire the site of many battles and history repeated itself during the English Civil War when even neighbouring towns took different sides and skirmishes ensued.
County town status has also put Aylesbury and Buckingham at odds. For Buckingham everything was rosy, the county town with a market that drew traders from the area, even King Henry III and his new bride Catherine of Aragon had visited and the town fallen under Catherine’s spell. Unfortunately, when Henry lost interest in poor Catherine, he also held a bit of a grudge against the Buckingham. What was even worse for the town’s fortunes was wealthy and influential Aylesbury landowner Thomas Boleyn. While Thomas won county status for his town, Henry won Thomas’ daughter Anne Boleyn. And they all lived happily ever after… Except for Anne, who was eventually beheaded by Henry who was about as loyal to his wives as he was to his county towns.
Modern Buckinghamshire is a hub of creative businesses, funky brewers, cool cafes and with its stunning countryside and superb transport links it’s naturally a sought-after county for house hunters.
And it’s green, not just “Ooh, look at the grass”, green, but eco-green, a county that is putting good eco-friendly foundations in place for future carbon neutral fuels and higher than national average recycling levels. This really is England’s green and pleasant land, but with easy access to England’s loud and funky days out, nightlife and adventure.
Buckinghamshire has produced a number of top sports men and women and has some excellent training infrastructure for many different sports, whether that’s budding superstars and future Olympians or weekend enthusiasts. There are great golf courses, beautiful lakes and rivers for fishing and some big teams including F1’s Red Bull Racing.
There are several excellent museums to explore such as the Roald Dahl Museum and Buckingham Gaol, plus a network of delicious farm shops, micro-breweries, artisan bakers and creators of all kinds of tasty treats. Music fans also have plenty to sing about with festivals covering all genres of music, from 80s revivals, classical, jazz, dance and rock.
Gulliver’s Land Theme Park provides the county’s big thrills and spills, the Hellfire Caves offer the chills and Bletchley Park the inspiration and awe with its codebreaking wizardry.
For many Bucks towns, London and Birmingham are in easy commuting distance by rail. The county’s road network is second to none with the M1, M25 and M40 offering drivers a fast route to pretty much anywhere. The county’s towns have worked hard at creating routes for cyclists in town centres or if you prefer to get away from the traffic, you’ll find offroad cycle and riding paths to a number of picturesque locations.
