High Wycombe isn’t a typical commuter town. Situated among the Chiltern Hills and scenic Buckinghamshire countryside, it provides a welcome haven for those relocating from the capital. It’s made even more attractive given the fast train service to London Marylebone.

Although the sleepy villages of surrounding High Wycombe are a major draw, the town centre shouldn’t be overlooked. Modern attractions provide convenience, while traditional values are still maintained in the old town. These cobbled streets host a weekly market which has taken place here since the Middle Ages.

Complementing these historic attractions, a newly developed shopping complex known as Eden houses all the major retailers, with a great choice of eateries and leisure facilities. Other nearby attractions include two cinemas, a swimming pool and the renowned Wycombe Swan – considered one of the best regional theatres in the UK.

Despite the multi-million pound developments and ongoing regeneration projects, High Wycombe hasn’t infringed on the nearby villages. A slower pace of life can be enjoyed here, with walking and cycling routes navigating the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The town sits adjacent to the M40 motorway, which provides convenient access to the M4, M1 and M25. Travelling by car to central London takes as little as 55 minutes and Heathrow Airport is only 20 miles away, or 30 minutes without traffic.

History of High Wycombe

High Wycombe received status as a market borough in 1222, but its history can be traced back to 150 AD. Excavations across the town have uncovered a Roman villa complete with bath house and intricate mosaics. Although little is known of this period, records of High Wycombe during Medieval and Tudor times suggest it prospered as a mill town.

Corn, lace and linen industries flourished thanks to its close proximity to the River Wye. This powered the mills and gave a convenient transport link to the bustling capital. Paper-making was another thriving industry, but it was the production of furniture in the 19th century that put High Wycombe on the map. The famed Windsor chair was manufactured here, with factories established all over town.

As the seat of the RAF’s Bomber Command, High Wycombe played a pivotal role during World War II. Although the furniture industry would soon decline, High Wycombe’s factories joined the war effort by producing aircraft components. In 1960, the town underwent a transformation with major development programmes. This commitment to regeneration is still present today, with ongoing improvements to all pedestrianised zones of the town.
