Places to stay in High Wycombe

High Wycombe is historic market town in Buckinghamshire - it has actually hosted a regular market since medieval times.

While High Wycombe is the largest town in Buckinghamshire, you can easily follow the River Wye out of the city to enjoy the county's countryside, including the Chiltern Hills, an area of chalk downs which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1965.

 
Hostels in High Wycombe
Hostels in High Wycombe

High Wycombe has plenty going on for adults and kids and adults alike, but if you want accommodation which is great value and in a slightly more relaxed area, then the Jordans Hostel in nearby Beaconsfield is ideal - and perfectly located for Legoland, Windsor Castle and links to the London Underground.

 

Five Free Things To Do In High Wycombe

Berkhamsted Castle
Windsor Castle may attract all the attention, but entry to the house and grounds of Berkhamstead Castle is free, and the site is not lacking in historic significance. Princes and princesses have been born here, and your own little heirs will have a great time exploring.

Whippendell Wood
Whippendell Wood has family-friendly trails which are great from exploration in every season, from the eerie quiet of winter to abundance of summer. Keep your eyes peeled for rare wild birds, badger setts and even deer.

Wycombe Museum
Wycombe Museum is a great little place of discovery, and while it regularly changes its exhibits, the emphasis for each one is making them interactive - meaning they're great for kids.

Black Park Country Park
Black Park is a great place to spend the day; there are woodlands to explore and open spaces for games, along with a large adventure playground which is sure to keep the kids entertained for hours.

Walk the Chilterns
The countryside just outside High Wycombe includes the Chilterns, a stunning selection of rolling hills which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hiking around here is not particualry taxing, but very rewarding.
