UK > Buckinghamshire

The name Buckinghamshire derives from the farm of Bucca's people. In the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire is Chequers -the Prime Minister's country residence - but contrary to popular opinion the county does not contain Buckingham Palace which remains firmly attached to its prime location in the centre of London.

Buckinghamshire covers about 730 square miles. The county town is the market town of Aylesbury in the south. People born in Aylesbury are popularly known as 'Aylesbury Ducks' referring to the breed of white duck native to the area. The county has many hidden villages, friendly rural pubs, thatched cottages and gentle country walks plus historic houses and museums. There are many small market towns to explore with a multitude of antique shops.

Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes was the British Military Intelligence headquarters during the Second World War and still contains some of the top secret equipment used to crack enemy codes.
