The market town of Buckingham sits on the A421 with Brackley & Banbury to the West and the city of Milton Keynes to the East. The shopping area of Milton Keynes is just 25 minutes away by car. The motor racing circuit at Silverstone is less than 15 minutes away.
A market has been held in Buckingham for over 400 years. On a Tuesday and Saturday that is a traditional market and on a Saturday there is the addition of a 'flea market'.
The town centre also has a range of independent and multi-national stores and supermarkets.
Whitehead Way is a modern estate on the Maids Morton Road about half a mile from the town centre. A walk to the town centre takes around 15 minutes.
