Most of us spend the Summer months adventuring far flung places and booking weekend getaways, but there is no reason not to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives in the Winter too. A winter break in Buckinghamshire is a great way to take some time out and enjoy one of the UK’s most beautiful counties. Buckinghamshire is known for its stunning countryside and enchanting villages, and during Winter you can experience a new side to this wonderful destination. Read on for our ultimate guide to a Winter break in Buckinghamshire, filled with must visit attractions and insider tips.
A Walking Winter Break In Buckinghamshire
One of the best ways to spend a bright Winters day in Buckinghamshire is to wrap up warm and head out for a stroll. Buckinghamshire has some beautiful countryside so don’t let the cold put you off. The Chilterns are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which offers sweeping views across the Aylesbury Vale to classic beech woodlands. There are various walking routes suited to all ages and abilities, and are perfect for an adventure all year round. The Low Scrubs walk is a short way-marked trail that takes you through deep, dark woodland with a mysterious atmosphere. Or for something more challenging you can tackle the Beacon Hill, Juniper Bank and Aston Wood walk which is a moderate route around the Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve.
A Winter Adventure At Black Park Go Ape
Black Park Go Ape is an exhilarating day out for all the family, and makes for a great adventure on a winter break in Buckinghamshire. Throughout the colder months the park is closed on some dates, but is open on Saturday’s and Sunday’s for both a Treetop Challenge and a Nets Adventure. The Treetop Challenge is a favourite among adults and children and is the Goliath of Go Ape’s treetop activities. Little ones can take part in the easier Treetop Adventure, made up of wobbly bridges and zip wire rides. For a different place to play on a Winter break in Buckinghamshire, take on the Nets Adventure which is a collaboration of tree houses and bouncy nets hovering 30 feet above the forest floor.
A Shopping Treat In Buckinghamshire Market Towns
Buckinghamshire is home to a wide range of unbeatable shopping locations, from lively urban centres to quaint market towns. A winter break in Buckinghamshire is one of the best times for a shopping trip, as a lot of places will be in the midst of their winter sales. Head to High Wycombe to experience a bustling market town in full force, or head to the Eden Centre for a range of popular shops during your winter break in Buckinghamshire.
