Visit Buckinghamshire

Visit Buckinghamshire England UK – If you like to visit rural locations you might be interested in a visit to the pretty county of Buckinghamshire, located to the north-west of London. Buckinghamshire is a historic county with wonderful countryside and some amazing places to visit. You might start with historic towns like Aylesbury or Amersham and maybe get some retail therapy at the new city of Milton Keynes which has some outstanding facilities. You could go for long bracing walks on the ever popular Wendover Hills and woods, part of the Chiltern Hills area. One of the most interesting places to visit is Bletchley Park where you can learn about the early story of computing and learn how the famous Enigma machine was developed to decode German messages during World War 2, a process which helped to end the war and secure victory for the Allies.
