Buckinghamshire, called Bucks by locals, is a South East England ceremonial county offering literary connections, National Trust sites, theme parks and unique museums to explore. At the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, you can learn about the famed author who wrote ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and see artefacts from his life. A trip to Gulliver’s Land Theme Park Resort lets you take in live entertainment, enjoy thrill rides and play games. The Bekonscot Model Village & Railway is the oldest miniature village park in the world.

The Chiltern Open Air Museum offers an array of rebuilt heritage buildings with costumed performers telling you about life in days past. The National Museum of Computing showcases vintage computers that are many decades old, most still functioning. National Trust sites include Stowe with its 18th-century garden, lakes and temples; and Hughenden, the stately former home of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, the 1st Earl of Beaconsfield. The man-made Hellfire Caves are filled with legend, myth and mystery for unusual entertainment.
