Where to go
Aylesbury's old quarter boasts some stunning Georgian, Tudor and Jacobean buildings, but other parts of the town offer a more contemporary vibe, with bustling shopping centres, nightlife and an eclectic variety of events being staged all year round.
Aylesbury is less than an hour's drive from a true English gem - Oxford. Simply head down the A418 to enjoy the so-called City of Dreaming Spires, famous for its prestigious university, world-class museums and historic buildings.
It's also well worth exploring many of the charming settlements outside the city, as the Cotswolds is an area renowned for its beautiful rolling hills and quintessentially English villages.
Central London is just over an hour away from Aylesbury down the A413 and A40, so it's easy for visitors to take their hire car to the capital to maybe enjoy a shopping trip, see a show on the West End or visit historic buildings such as the Houses of Parliament.
Alternatively, Thetford Forest in Norfolk is a beautiful location, less than two hours away from Aylesbury in the car, while Birmingham is a similar distance away up the M40.
Eating and drinking
Aylesbury town centre boasts more than 60 bars, restaurants and cafes, serving up cuisine from across the world and traditional English dishes.
One area that's highly recommended is the Kingsbury area just off the top of Market Square, where locals and visitors can often be seen dining al fresco at the charming cafes.
Things to do
The Buckinghamshire County Museum is located in the heart of town and presents a fascinating history of the area.
Buckinghamshire Art Gallery is situated here too, and features an ever-changing selection of displays.
Visitors can also enjoy the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery, an award-winning attraction that uses characters and themes from Dahl's books to get young people interested in literature, history and science.
Aylesbury is very close to two well-known Areas of Outstanding Beauty - the Chilterns and the North Wessex Downs. These areas boast some of the finest countryside anywhere in the UK and offer countless stunning views to visiting hire car drivers.
