Shopping
A New England style shopping village dropped into the British landscape and nicely done, with all the big brands at discount prices. Go early ie 10:00 am, or late - after 5:00 pm to avoid the crowds. This is especially true at weekends.

City experience
Only half an hour a way, it would be a shame to miss Oxford with its museums, wonderful buildings and colleges, botanical garden, library and parks. You can book College tours on certain days. On sunny summer days pack a picnic and rent a punt at Magdalen Bridge or at the Cherwell Boat House. Many decent places to eat too from the Parsonage Hotel to Gees, the Old Bank Hotel to Brown’s.

With Aylesbury Vale Parkway station only three miles away and trains every hour, London is just an hour away. See the sights, go to the theatre or museum or just shop and be back in time for dinner or bed.

A punt through Oxford and a picnic on a summer’s day, you can’t get much better than that. There’s a car park on the Headington side of Magdalen bridge so an easy walk to the punt hire.

Market Town
Just 10 miles away, the Market Town of Thame is a far more pleasant experience than Aylesbury. A proper market (on market days), butchers, bakers, delis and other shops as well as Waitrose and several restaurants.

Food scene
The Rothschild owned hotel in the centre of Waddesdon. A bit pricy. Best when busy or it’s a bit lonely.

Good food both indoor and outdoor (lovely garden). Bit of a drive (33 minutes) but nice countryside and great for a weekend lunch. Raymond Blanc says it’s his favourite Sunday lunch spot. Praise indeed.
