Buckingham is a vibrant small market town with the river Great Ouse winding through its centre and large green spaces in and near the town centre. Chandos Park has a play area and a multi-use games area. Bourton Park has bridleways, playgrounds, picnic sites and special dog exercising areas. The Heartlands links the two major parks and contains a skate-board park and children’s playground. In addition to the parkland many of the roads are tree lined, making it a very green town.
The Old Town has narrow streets, old buildings, a famous twisted chimney, and various architectural styles. The Old Gaol sits dominantly in the centre of the town and now houses a museum. Other historic buildings include The Chantry Chapel (owned by the National Trust) which was once a school, and is Buckingham’s oldest building dating back in parts to the 12th century. The Old Town Hall is topped with an impressive gilded swan and was rebuilt in the 18th century following the disastrous fire of Buckingham in 1724. The town also has a fine array of Georgian buildings.
Charters, from Mary Tudor in 1554 and Charles II in 1684, established market days and two annual fairs, which still take place today with a general market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and a flea market on Saturdays. A wide range of traditional foods from around the world also feature at continental markets held at various times throughout the year. There are also numerous independent shops and cafes, pubs and restaurants in the centre.
The town has a strong community spirit. The Film Place is a cinema run by local volunteers. Annual events include the May Day celebrations, Music in the Market in May, Band Jam in August, Bonfire and Fireworks in November and the Christmas Parade in December. There are also festivals with the Buckingham Fringe for a week in July, a Summer Festival of classical and modern music and a Literary Festival. In addition there are over a hundred community groups and organisations including clubs for football, rugby, and bowls. There is a golf club on the edge of town and the Swan Pool and Leisure centre has swimming pools, squash courts and a fitness suite.
