Buckinghamshire and its many attractions

Roald Dahl, the famous children's writer, lived in Buckinghamshire for thirty years. Locations within the county inspired, and were often mentioned, in the books he wrote. The Roald Dahl Children's Gallery, in Aylesbury, offers a variety of activities for children and fans of Dahl. Taking inspiration from many of Dahl's stories, the centre provides a fun-filled, family day out. Kids can discover new inventions with Willy Wonka and follow mini-beasts in James' Giant Peach, as well as browsing through Matilda's library. The Roald Dahl Trail is a route that starts in the town Dahl lived in, Great Missenden, and takes visitors on a magical journey around Buckinghamshire. Full of places of inspiration and mysterious, secret sites, the trail is a great experience for both adults and children. Literary genius in the area does not stop at Roald Dahl; an exhibition dedicated to Flora Thompson resides at the Buckingham Old Gaol Museum. As a frequent visitor to the county, the writer of many books (including Lark Rise to Candleford), loved the area dearly. 

If you are seeking picturesque landscapes in Buckinghamshire, look no further than the Chiltern Hills. Enclosed fields, hills and enchanting woodlands all contribute to the region being classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Chiltern Hills lie between a pattern of clear rivers and chalk streams that are perfect for paddling in, on a warm Summer's day. The streams also provide a rare habitat for plants and wildlife in the area. Nature lovers will love exploring the riverbanks and trying to catch a glimpse of the rare bird, the Red Kite, in the skies. An ideal picnic spot for families and couples, or a relaxing break from typical tourist hotspots, the Chiltern Hills is an amazing area of Buckinghamshire. 

The county is also known for sport. The Silverstone Circuit, infamous in the world of motor racing, lies between Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire. Sports fans will also be impressed by Dorney Lake. As the venue of the rowing events of the 2012 Summer Olympics, a visit to the lake is guaranteed to instil a love of the United Kingdom into visitors. For those seeking thrills in Buckinghamshire, the Go Ape! centre is a fantastic place, offering tree-top adventures and Segway routes through the forests of the county. Another sports centre, Xscape, offers indoor skiing, rock climbing and even sky diving! A definite must for visiting daredevils. 

Whether you want to take a magical trip around Roald Dahl's county, roam through the beautiful landscapes of the Chiltern Hills or have a sporting adventure, Buckinghamshire is full of great options to choose from.
