There’s so much to do outdoors in Aylesbury town centre and beyond.

Aylesbury’s relaxing canal basin is just a five minute stroll from the hubbub of the shopping centres. Enjoy some wildlife spotting during your lunchtime, or use it as a great starting point for family walks and to see the bustle of life at the water’s edge.

The Green Flag award winning Vale Park is another great spot. This contemporary park is not only beautiful but home to a play area, tennis courts and large open picnic area, as well as Aqua Vale Swimming and Fitness Centre. Perfect for picnics and informal games.

And discover Aylesbury’s hidden gems through the Heritage Walk, a fascinating self-guided walk that gives you an insight into the market town’s architectural history and don’t miss the ‘Earthly Messenger‘ sculpture, one of Aylesbury’s top tourist attractions (as ranked by TripAdvisor).

Whether you want to get outdoors to enjoy the beautiful countryside, get fit, or tire the kids out, there’s something for everyone!
