Buckingham Villiers Hotel

Centrally-located and housed in a charming building, Villiers Hotel is a classic English hotel, bar and restaurant.

A cosy lobby and friendly service greeted us on our arrival, where we were shown to unusual accommodation which was spread across two floors and contained a galleried bedroom. Had the most comfortable stay and spent a considerable amount of time in front of the hotel bar's roaring fire.

Buckingham

Buckingham Old Gaol, Market Hill, Buckingham MK18 1JX (01280) 823020
Built in 1748, this castle-like prison has now become a museum, a tourist information centre and private and corporate event venue.

Having been re-modelled in 1839 by the same architect who designed London’s St. Pancras Station, the Gaol was also used as Buckingham’s police station.

Claydon, Middle Claydon, near Buckingham MK18 2EY (01494) 755561
Ancestral home of the Verney family since 1620, Claydon almost became the financial undoing of Sir Ralph Verney during the 1750s, as he attempted to outdo his neighbours by improving its grandeur.

Now operated by the National Trust, Claydon still contains the lavish interiors created by Sir Ralph Verney, as well as a small museum dedicated to Lady Verney; sister of Florence Nightingale; a regular visitor to the house.
