Visit Buckinghamshire for National Trust manor houses, Chiltern landscapes that inspired literary residents and a rich sporting heritage. There are lots of things to do in Buckinghamshire. Walk in Roald Dahl's footsteps through medieval villages to historic coaching inns. Or nose in drawing rooms in Italianate mansions, the backdrop for scandals like the Profumo Affair. This colourful southeast county has a high-octane side. Formula One cars rev on Grand Prix circuits and crews of rowers paddle on Olympic rowing lakes. Drive or cycle slowly and you might spot the prime minister's 12th-century country house, Chequers tucked away near Aylesbury. Buckinghamshire has something for everyone.
