Beyond the convenient transport links and infrastructure, the town of Aylesbury is awash with activities to take part in, one of which is the weekly Aylesbury Parkrun. If you fancy donning your running shoes while you’re away, then this 5km run is free to enter and happens every Saturday morning, starting at the Quarrendon and Meadowcroft Community Centre. It’s a great way to meet new people, keep active and see some of the local area at your own pace.
Naturally, running on a Saturday morning isn’t for everyone, but a spot of culture is and Aylesbury and the county of Buckinghamshire has a rich history and plenty of cultural sights to suit all kinds of visitors.
Aylesbury and the surrounding areas are home to some gorgeous heritage sites, including Waddesdon Manor, a stunning neo-renaissance country house and gardens; Claydon House, a 16th Century manor house that was frequented by Florence Nightingale; and Clivedon, the former country home of Lord Astor in the thirties that is now a luxury hotel and spa.

Further afield, a walk up to Coombe Hill will reward you with breathtaking panoramic views over the county; while Wendover Woods has plenty of walking and cycle trails to enjoy, as well as a Go-Ape! and Tree Top Adventure orienteering, great for both adults and kids.
