Although the centre of High Wycombe has some interesting architecture to admire such as the Market House and Guildhall there are not many tourist attractions actually in the town. Browse the local shops and market and enjoy a coffee or lunch before visiting Wycombe Museum which gives you an interesting overview of history in the town and surrounding villages. Children can have fun in the playground of The Rye, a pretty park bordered by two rivers. Your car hire puts you within easy reach of the pretty Hambledon Valley and historic riverside towns such as Marlow and Henley.
The chalk uplands of the Chilterns are dotted with caves but the most famous are probably those at West Wycombe, more commonly known as the Hell Fire Caves for their outrageous history. These caves were carved out of the hillside in the mid-18th century by the dashing Sir Francis Dashwood. It was here that the strange and illicit goings-on of the Hellfire Club happened after dark. Today visitors can take the long winding passage past various small chambers while life-size figures in period dress provide a commentary. The caves and the Dashwood Mausoleum are within walking distance of the town centre.
Literature lovers of all ages will find a visit to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre at Great Missenden a real treat.

Hughenden Manor is the former home of Benjamin Disraeli, one of Queen Victoria's prime ministers. Built of soft red brick, it sits overlooking well-maintained gardens and a lake. A quirky feature of the house is a lack of electricity, a former resident considered it a passing fad that wouldn't catch on.
The Chiltern Open Air Museum is a fascinating place that provides a glimpse into the past through 30 old houses and buildings that have been dismantled and lovingly rebuilt on the site. All of the rescued buildings were under threat of demolition. Wander through the homes of everyday people and see how their daily lives were lived.
High Wycombe started life as a Roman villa before becoming a market borough in the early 13th-century. Through the years it has been an important staging post between Oxford and London as well as a mill town manufacturing lace, cloth and paper. It is, however, best known for its furniture industry which started with the mass production of chairs in the Victorian era. Some of the houses still standing in the town were built to house workers in the furniture factories. Recent economic regeneration has included the shopping centre, a hotel and a student village catering for the nearby Buckinghamshire New University. Lane End is a residential conference centre set in idyllic woodland surroundings.
