10 Things To Do In High Wycombe


High Wycombe is a town in Buckinghamshire, England. It has been described as “the most English of all the English towns” due to its (relative) lack of skyscrapers and shopping malls, and it’s definitely worth exploring for the atmosphere alone!

High Wycombe Castle

If you’re looking for a place to visit in High Wycombe, then High Wycombe Castle is a great option. This castle has been around since the 12th century and still stands today as one of the most important landmarks in town. It’s also a popular attraction for many people who come to see it; there are regular tours available (and they are free!), so be sure not to miss out on this chance!

The history behind this structure is pretty interesting too; it was built by King John (who ruled during the 12th century) as part of his attempts at expanding Buckingham Palace into his own personal home base after he became king over England. The castle went through many renovations over time until eventually being abandoned during World War II due largely because many homes were destroyed during bombing raids by Germany during World War II while others were evacuated due to fear of attack from them as well…

Art and Science Museum

The Art and Science Museum is located in the High Wycombe Castle. It is free to visit and has a variety of exhibits, including:

  • A model of the castle itself
  • An interactive exhibit about dinosaurs and their environment
  • A science room that includes touchscreens where you can play your own video games or watch movies (you’ll need to buy tickets from the gift shop first)

In addition to being a great place for kids, this museum has a cafe that serves hot chocolate and sandwiches; it also sells souvenirs like T-shirts!

Canal Theatre

The Canal Theatre is a theatre in High Wycombe. It is located on the canal, and has a capacity of 700 people. The theatre was originally built by John Simon as a theatre in 1777 but it burned down in 1864. In 1864, Richard Yates took over as manager and refurbished another building (which was also home to a pub) and renamed it “The Theatre Royal”. Nowadays, this same building houses both the Canal Theatre Company who perform live performances during the summer months, as well as their own new productions throughout the year which are performed at other venues around town or within their own space at The Barnsley Hall near Clapton Common Community School – where they have been since 1977!

Bouverie Arts Centre has been providing opportunities for people to enjoy the arts since then, with events such as concerts, drama performances and exhibitions taking place there every month or so throughout the year. The centre also offers classes on everything from pottery making to creative writing as well as workshops where you can learn how to make masks or even paint portraits yourself!

Imperial Travel Service (ETS) World (Train Station)

The ETS World train station is the most popular in High Wycombe and Buckinghamshire, with over 12 million passengers using it every year. It’s located on Station Road, near to the town centre and caters for both long-distance trains like Eurostar services as well as local commuter services (including those run by Chiltern Railways).

It was opened in 2000 by British Rail following a £30 million refurbishment project that saw two new platforms added to replace the old Victorian platforms which were built around 1900. These new ones were built with safety features such as arches over doorways so that people could not fall off them if there was an accident or fire happened within their vicinity; additionally they also featured automatic doors at each end which would close quickly when someone entered them so no one could escape while they tried finding another way out!
