A large town in Buckinghamshire, High Wycombe is often referred to simply as Wycombe. It has a population of around 120,000.
Culture in High Wycombe
Located in the centre of the town, Wycombe Swan is a 1000-seat theatre venue hosting a wide range of touring productions as well as stand-up comedy and musical tribute acts. Brunel’s Grade II listed railway shed at High Wycombe station is an iconic local landmark and has recently been given a makeover. It’s a fascinating place to visit for train buffs and tourists alike. Elsewhere, the 11th century All Saints Parish Church is arguably the most attractive structure in High Wycombe, while Hughenden Manor – once the home of former prime minister Benjamin Disraeli – is a fine example of a Victorian country house.
Things to do in High Wycombe
You’re unlikely to be bored here. From child-friendly activities to country walks and a range of traditional English pubs, there really is something for everyone. For the children, Hughenden Park and The Rye are great places for them to burn off all that excess energy, while Bekonscot Model Village is a short drive away.
Acres of lush countryside surround High Wycombe in all directions, so you don’t have to go far to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and be at one with nature with a relaxing weekend stroll. The Hellfire Caves (sometimes known as the West Wycombe caves) are quite a sight to behold. A network of artificial caves dug into the side of a hill in the 1740s, they make for an alternative (but endlessly interesting) day out for the whole family. For sports enthusiasts, Wycombe Wanderers play at Adams Park, while there are a raft of pubs and restaurants to keep keen foodies happy.
Student Life in High Wycombe
Bucks New University is based in High Wycombe and has a student population of nearly 9,000. Brunel University is also fairly nearby. With an easy commute to London, good local amenities and plenty of pubs and bars in the town centre, its appeal is not hard to understand.
Buying in High Wycombe
Not as much as you might think, given it’s a very popular commuter hub and a highly student-friendly area. The average asking price could certainly be bracketed as affordable in this day and age, and the buyers’ market here will be very competitive (families, in particular, appreciate the excellent local schools and better work life balance). As house prices in London continue to increase at a rapid rate, commuter towns such as High Wycombe look set to benefit for years to come.
