High Wycombe, commonly known as Wycombe, is a large town in Buckinghamshire, England. It is 29 miles west-north-west of Charing Cross in London. High Wycombe is surrounded by some of the loveliest countryside in southern England. Situated in a deep valley, in the heart of the Chilterns, High Wycombe is the largest town in Buckinghamshire, having grown up during the 18th and 19th centuries around the furniture industry, and was once known as 'the furniture capital of England.'
The typically Georgian High Street, is dominated at its western end by the Little Market House, built by Robert Adam and known affectionately as 'The Pepperpot'. Opposite is the handsome arcaded Guildhall, where a unique annual ceremony is enacted thought to date from medieval times - the 'weighing-in' of the Mayor and Charter Trustees to determine if they have grown fat at the ratepayers' expense.
To the east of the town there is a wide expanse of grassland, called 'The Rye'. An artificial lake, bounded by hanging beech woods, which encompass a Nature Trail, is used for fishing and during the summer months, for boating. 1.5 miles from the town centre is Hughenden Manor Park, this Victorian Gothic house was the home of former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeili.
