A classic market town, with a wonderful pedestrian area known as Georgian High Street, sitting in a steep valley, High Wycombe is a welcoming southern town. In fact, the town is still offering vibrant markets on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Surrounded by ‘The Rye’ with grassland and beech woods, this was once the ‘furniture capital of England’ but it’s known for so much more.
Just behind the Little Market House, affectionately known as the Pepper Pot, is the largest 12th century Parish church in existence in Buckinghamshire. The town is also known locally for the May event of the ‘Mayor Making’ whereby the Mayor and Charter Trustees are weighed for the purpose of seeing if they are using the taxes for a lavish lifestyle!
