Buckinghamshire is a ceremonial county in South East England. It is usually abbreviated to Bucks and is archaically known as the County of Buckingham. Buckinghamshire is known as a Non-Metropolitan county and a Home county. This means it is a county that shares its borders with London. Aylesbury is Buckinghamshire’s county town but Milton Keynes is the largest.

Buckinghamshire’s area totals at just over 1,800 Kilometres squared. (Around 720 miles squared) with a population a little over 750,000.

Various regions of the county lie close to London and rest in the area known as the Metropolitan Green Belt. The Metropolitan Green Belt is an area that prohibits heavy urbanisation, which in turn has kept London from expanding into Buckinghamshire and left the area scarcely developed. Buckinghamshire is also home to two nationally important locations: Dorney Lake and Pinewood Studios. Dorney Lake was the designated area for the rowing events during the 2012 Summer Olympics. Milton Keynes has given Buckinghamshire some notability as it is a new town, likewise the Chiltern Hills which has been given the title of “Area of outstanding beauty” also gathers some popularity for the county.

Buckinghamshire also holds parts of two of the four longest rivers in England. One being the River Thames, and the other being the River Great Ouse.
