High Wycombe is the largest town in the district and boasts a wealth of entertainment and shopping facilities for users. The Wycombe Chilterns is officially an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With High Wycombe as its main centre, the District stretches south to the River Thames at Marlow and north to the highest point in the Chilterns at Coombe Hill, beyond Princes Risborough.

The ancient churches often contain treasures and the entire area is steeped in history. The district is well placed and easily accessible by road, rail and air links, indeed High Wycombe town centre is only 30 miles from central London.
