Buckingham is a small market town to be found towards the north of the county of Buckinghamshire. Originally the county town, this title was later passed on to Aylesbury, in the 18th century, which holds the position to this day.
Situated in the far north of the largely affluent county, close to the borders with Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire, Buckingham can sometimes feel like the poor cousin.
The town boasts a rich history and a thriving (and growing) community. Buckingham’s many attractions include a plethora of independent shops, bars and eateries. If you’ve not made time to visit yet, it’s time you did (ok, not right now, maybe wait til the lock down has been lifted).
The proliferation of coffee shops, barbers and gyms in Buckingham suggests a population with ample time for leisure.
The skyline of the town, especially in the ‘historic quarter’ is dominated by the church of St Peter and St Paul. Also known as Buckingham Parish church, it stands on the site originally occupied by Buckingham’s sadly long lost castle.
Here on Buckingcam, we aim to publish a daily photograph of Buckingham, via our Instagram feed. Our selections are random, and designed to give a flavour of what a visitor to the town might find if they take the time to explore.
From time to time we will also wander further afield into the surrounding areas and capture images of those as well.
