Aylesbury is located in the county of Buckinghamshire in South East England. The town’s population has doubled since the 1960s due to new housing developments. However, Aylesbury saw substantial areas in its centre demolished in the 1950s and 1960s when some houses were pulled down to make way for commercial developments, despite many of these houses being in good condition.
Among the pubs and bars in Aylesbury, The Hop Pole on the Bicester Road has been voted one of the top 20 pubs in the UK. The Conservation Area around St. Mary’s church and Queens Park are amongst some of the most popular areas of the town.
In 2001 the town won funding of £1million to become one of six cycling demonstration towns in England, which was also funded by Buckinghamshire County Council. This has benefitted the town and has provided many facilities for cyclists, such as bike lockers, bike stands and bike lanes.
Aylesbury is served by many transport options and has fast connections to London and other areas.
