At Bucks we have a friendly community, based at an iconic main campus in the modern and expanding market town of High Wycombe. We also have a campus in Uxbridge, West London, which delivers our health related courses.
High Wycombe is traditionally a market town, which developed initially around furniture production. There has been a market in the town dating back since at least medieval times; this is a tradition that is still held, as we have markets in the high street three days a week.
We have a large new shopping centre on the doorstep of the High Wycombe campus, named Eden. There are a range of clothes, entertainment, home, heath, beauty and leisure shops here. If you fancy something different we are also very close to London with its famous markets and high end retailers such as Harrods.
Uxbridge has a history dating from about 100 years after the Domesday Book was written. The area was known for its market and as a major corn market and flour milling centre. The town developed around this and has grown to be connected closely with the central London area through the years, especially since trams, and later the London underground connected it directly.
Aside from the local attractions of the craft market, Grand Union Canal and Colne Valley Park in Uxbridge, world-class shopping, the globally acclaimed theatres, museums, concert halls and art galleries as well as the diverse nightlife are all on your doorstep. London is bursting with free special events, festivals and attractions, so as a student you can take advantage of what our capital city has to offer.
