With close proximity to London, as well as the scenic countryside of Buckinghamshire, the market town of Aylesbury is popular with professionals and families alike.

Careful development in recent years has brought modern infrastructure without damaging the area’s historic charm. The largest town in the Aylesbury Vale, its vibrant history can be traced back to 650BC. Fortunately, the character of the ‘old town’ and many of the impressive sights remain intact. These include St Mary’s Church, the King’s Head Inn – once frequented by Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn – and the towering statue of John Hampden, which commemorates a local hero and influential leader in the English Civil War.

With that being said, Aylesbury still manages to compete with larger towns or cities, providing impressive facilities from contemporary shopping complexes to award-winning restaurants. For the health-conscious, there is a great choice of leisure centres offering swimming and other fitness facilities.

Nearby villages and hamlets provide a quieter atmosphere, surrounded by the rolling landscape of Buckinghamshire and the Chiltern Hills. In a county with one of the highest numbers of National Trust properties in the UK, there’s always an attraction or two worth exploring.

Finally, the first-rate educational establishments provide further motivation for families relocating to the area, as does the ongoing development. The regeneration project will create even more property choice, with both flats and housing estates planned.

 

Transportation in Aylesbury

As an important commuter hub, trains to and from Aylesbury Station to London Marylebone are frequent. These are usually available five times per hour at peak times and take approximately one hour. The nearby station at Tring also provides a direct connection to London Euston, with a travel time of 40 minutes.

Travelling by car is just as convenient, with A roads leading to the M40, M25 and M1. Alternatively, for holidays and business trips, Aylesbury is only 40 minutes by car to Heathrow and London Luton airports.

 

Primary and secondary schools in Aylesbury

Aylesbury is home to a selection of renowned educational establishments, not to mention the other nearby schools of Buckinghamshire. Many of the state schools are among the top achievers in the south-east. This includes Aylesbury High School, which appeared at number 20 in the Telegraph’s summer 2014 GCSE results league table.

Aylesbury Grammar School and Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School both achieved a 98% success rate for students achieving five good GCSEs or more.

Higher education is equally impressive, including the recent development of University Campus Aylesbury Vale (UCAV). Following a £16.5 million project, this waterside complex provides state-of-the-art facilities to foster learning in future professionals and leaders.

Alternatively, students have the choice of Aylesbury College of Further Education, or the nearby University of Buckingham – the UK’s only independent university with a Royal Charter.

 

History of Aylesbury

The rich and varied history of Aylesbury dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, when the region was considered a commercial centre. The market town was of major importance during this period and considered a stronghold due to its location linking traders from London to the south-west.

Aylesbury was named the county town of Buckinghamshire by Henry VIII back in 1529. Growth was to come throughout the following centuries as several industries flourished, from lace-making to silk production, printing and brewing. This development continued into the 19th century as newly established transportation links connected Aylesbury to London by rail and canal.

The population soared as infrastructure improved in the 20th century. The Stoke Mandeville Hospital opened its door in 1940, while the Aylesbury Technical College (now called Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School) and Grange School were soon to follow.

In 1942, Aylesbury was declared an overspill town for London, providing a haven for those seeking to escape the crowded capital. Leaving behind its image as a rural market town, Aylesbury became a sought-after location for those seeking close proximity to London.

What is it Like to Live in Aylesbury? 

Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire, located midway between High Wycombe and Milton Keynes. Housing in the town is set to grow considerably in the coming years, with 16,000 home set to be built by 2033.  

Aylesbury was a major market town in Anglo-Saxon times, and the town still exudes a charismatic “village town” feeling, most evident with the cobbled market square and cottage-dotted side streets. Aylesbury has everything you need in one place, which saves you from having to venture out of the town for any necessities. 

With two great grammar schools, local shops, a hospital and the railway, everything is on your doorstep whether you’re an expanding family or a commuter to London. 

Aylesbury has plenty to offer in the way of schools with several fantastic primary and secondary schools, as well as highly regarded private schooling options.

The Aylesbury Vale Parkway train station offers an easier commute into Marylebone station for the northern side of town, whilst Aylesbury train station provides train journeys from the centre of the town. Aylesbury is at the start/end of the line to London, meaning you will always have a seat in the morning.  

Aylesbury is also located close to the A41 and A418, providing easy access to Oxford and London, as well as to a number of nearby towns including Bicester and Milton Keynes.  

Lifestyle, Leisure and Amenities  

Aylesbury is less than ten miles from Great Missenden, known to be the home of author Roald Dahl.

These award-winning attractions use characters and events from the author to educate children about history, literature, and science. They offer a fine day out for the whole family over the weekend. 

For people interested purely in the artistic side of the arts, a short drive to Stoke Mandeville holds the Obsidian Art Gallery, with work changing between local and national artists. 

The new and outstanding Aylesbury Waterside Theare, located in the heart of the town, regularly hosts plays directly from London’s West End. You might even be fortunate enough to see the next big show before it hits London! The theatre also showcases touring musicals, which the whole family is sure to love.  

The Queens Park Centre, also located in the town centre, is the UK’s largest independent arts centre, and serves as the creative and cultural hub of Aylesbury and Buckinghamshire. 

While Aylesbury does not have a massive shopping presence, its location makes it easy to travel to Bicester Village, an outlet of luxury designer clothes. Alternatively, you can take the train to London to enjoy endless shopping opportunities, not to mention a day out or night out in the capital.
