Buckinghamshire must be one of the most family friendly counties there is. Jam-packed full of discoveries for toddlers, teens and grown-ups alike.
There are stunning nature reserves, tranquil picnic river settings, picturesque ‘Midsommer Murder' villages, gastronomic havens and bustling market towns.
You can see dueling knights on horseback at Chiltern Open Air Museum, ‘aw'-inspiring rescued hedgehogs at Tiggywinkles, all kinds of monkey business at Black Park's Go Ape or enter the mad, mad world of the Roald Dahl museum.
Or how about indulging in an art lover's paradise at the elegantly decadent Waddesdon Manor, catching a show at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury or joining in the family fun of the Penn Street Festival?
There are steam trains at Quainton, sheep racing (!) at Odds Farm, kite flying, canoeing, serious cycle tracks, Lidos and (deep breath)… great transport links to London and the Midlands.
Phew! It's all in a day of the life of a Bucks family.
