Welcome to Princes Risborough

The country town of Princes Risborough lies between the Vale of Aylesbury and is regarded as many as the Gateway to the Chilterns. On the route of the pre-Roman Upper Icknield Way and dominated by a chalk hill carving the Whiteleaf Cross, Prince Risborough is a centre for unique events such as the Kop Hill Climb and a popular area for walking and cycling.

This website is for the benefit of both residents and visitors alike, who seek to enjoy the advantages of being part of our community. I trust it will also be informative and interesting to prospective residents, visitors and tourists and enable them to take full advantage of what the town has to offer.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you enjoying our Town.
