Buckingham Town Accommodation

Buckingham is a thriving market town, which has grown rapidly over the past 25 years. There are many historic buildings, mainly of Georgian appearance, rebuilt, restored and renovated after a disastrous fire in 1725 destroyed much of the old town. In the centre of Buckingham is the curious castle-like Old Gaol housing the local museum and, set on a hill amongst pretty cottages, is the beautiful Buckingham Church.

Buckingham has many good facilities, including a swimming pool & leisure centre, health clubs and an all-weather sports pitch. Golf courses and horse riding schools, cricket and football pitches are nearby. There are a wide variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and a twice-weekly market selling all manner of produce, from food to clothing and shoes. There is a flea-market every Saturday.

If you stay in the beautiful historic town of Buckingham, there are many sites of interest to visit, such as:

The Church of St Peter & St Paul - Occupying the site of a former Saxon Castle, the parish church was completed in 1781 but was partly rebuilt by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the 19th Century. Inside are a number of carved Tudor bench ends and a Latin manuscript bible from 1471. (Quite a good place to park)

The Old Gaol Museum (The Old Jail) - Restored extensively by the Buckingham Heritage Trust, this landmark building in Buckingham town centre celebrated its 250th anniversary in 1998. It now houses a fascinating museum reflecting the building’s history through an audiovisual display, aspects of Buckingham’s past, and Buckinghamshire’s military history. Regular themed exhibitions are also held at the museum throughout the year. Includes a ‘Cell Shop’ providing souvenirs and mementoes of Buckingham and the Tourist Information Centre.

The Old Town Hall - The old town hall, which is topped with an impressive gilded Swan, was built in the 18th Century following the disastrous fire of Buckingham in 1725. Both the Town Hall and the Old Gaol were built in a bid to win back the Assizes. Now used as a conference and entertainment venue for weddings and exhibitions.

The University of Buckingham - is small, intimate and has a unique atmosphere, perfect for studying. It has the feel of an Oxbridge college, with beautiful grounds and buildings but without the distractions of a noisy city. An independent University with innovative 2 year degree courses.

Accommodation is mostly on campus and there is never more than a 10-minute walk from your halls of residence, to the lecture rooms, the library, or to whichever resource you require. Centrally situated within the town.

Istra Cottages - just one of the buildings which the University has restored to its former beauty in this, the older part of Buckingham.

Istra Cottages houses the Student Support department. What better environment could you hope to come to when you're feeling stressed?

The short walk from Hunter Street to Chandos Road takes you over the River Ouse and through scenery which is typical of Buckingham's attractive campus.

Tanlaw Mill - now restored and converted, once the industrial heart of the town this is now the social heart of the University housing the Refectory, Students Union, bar and sporting and recreation facilities.
