Inspiration Wednesday – Aylesbury

Our #InspirationWednesday today is Buckinghamshire’s county town of Aylesbury. The pretty town which is a London commuter hotspot benefits from great location and a thriving community feel.


Known for being a major market town in Anglo-Saxon times, the town has a rich and interesting history, with many buildings left as a reminder. If you want to step back in time, visit Waddesdon Manor, a beautiful National Trust property in the area with great gardens and even an Aviary.


During the 60s, 70s and 80s, the ‘Friars’ Club’ in Aylesbury hosted many massive names, such as Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Otis Redding, Queen, Genesis, U2 and David Bowie! The town is a regular star in ‘Midsomer Murders’ and also appeared in the controversial film, Clockwork Orange.
