To get away from dissertation planning and massive amounts of writing, I used to go on mini road trips to different places around Buckinghamshire and the Home counties, there was something quite fun about just picking a place off a map, somewhere you knew nothing about, not knowing what was there, or even it would be worth it, that made the day quite an adventure.
Here are some of my favorite places to visit when in Bucks
It was late in the day when I got to Buckingham, I had been to a fair few different places that day and Buckingham was my final destination, my first impression was of a quiet market town, which was filled with pretty little shops and lovely buildings, sadly as it was so late in the day, the town was quiet and most of the shops had shut already, so I really need to visit Buckingham again when the town is filled with people, exploring some of the great independent shops that line the town centre streets.
I have been to Turville many times, but I keep going back because it is a photographers dream, you could loose yourself in it’s dream like nature, Turville is famous for being the location of many films and television programs, including Mid Summer Murders and The Vicar of Dibley, the reason for this is because the place is stunning, the village is tiny, but every building is very photogenic and is a must visit if your ever in the area.
Another of Buckinghamshires beautiful villages, situated just outside of the large town of High Wycombe, is the quaint home of the Hell Fire Caves, steeped in history and known the world over for its satanic links and ghost stories, West Wycombe is a complete contrast to it’s larger counterpart, with old buildings, untouched for hundreds of years and living in a slower pace of life, this makes it a strange location for the satanic parties and general wrong doings that are associated with the caves that sit at the centre of the village, tunneling deep into the hillside, providing the location for preforming un-holy goings on, away from prying eyes, if ever you are near Wycombe, make sure to add the Hell Fire Caves and West Wycombe to your list of places to visit.
