High Wycombe is situated in the county of Buckinghamshire, exploring High Wycombe and the surrounding area is relatively easy with car hire thanks to a well developed infrastructure and the M40 which is close by.

High Wycombe is surrounded by some of the loveliest countryside in southern England. and is the largest town in Buckinghamshire, having grown up during the 18th and 19th centuries around the furniture industry, and was once known as 'the furniture capital of England.' Its wide, typically Georgian High Street, is dominated at its western end by the Little Market House, built by Robert Adam and known affectionately as 'The Pepperpot'. 

The Parish Church was founded by the Normans and enlarged to almost its present day size in the 12th century. It is a very impressive building, the largest church in the county and contains many interesting monuments and memorials. High Wycombe Museum is housed in an historic 18th century building surrounded by peaceful gardens. There are interactive displays, changing temporary exhibitions and a shop. 

To the east of the town there is a wide expanse of grassland, called 'The Rye'. An artificial lake, bounded by hanging beech woods, which encompass a Nature Trail, is used for fishing and boating during the summer months. 1.5 miles from the town centre is Hughenden Manor Park, this Victorian Gothic house was the home of former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeili.
