Advantages: Cinema, New Swimming pool (not yet built), Lots of shops and stuff to do.
Disadvantages: Wouldn't like to live there.
Fist off I don't live in Aylesbury - I live in Wendover, which is a fairly large village about 5 miles away from Aylesbury. Being a young person I get quite bored in Wendover and spend most of my weekends and go to school in Aylesbury.
Theres alot to do in Aylesbury - its got a brilliant cinema, just recently built. Its got loads of screens and shows all the latest releases. Its a great facility and I use it quite alot. the only thing I would say is that the food and drinks in there are a rip off so its better to buy them somewhere else.
At the time I am writing this the new swimming pool has not yet been built - but it should be soon. It's going to have great facilties and will be brilliant - when its built. At the moment Aylesbury has a pool, but its not great. Its basically a plain pool and occasionally it has a blow up inflatable slide but thats it. It does, however have a gym and sauna which are both good facilities and its cheap to get into.
Theres loads of shops - you can buy most things somewhere in Aylesbury. Music shops, restaurants (Pizza, Fast Food, Chinese etc...) supermarkets - and lots of other shops. Friars Square is a quite large shopping centre with lots of shops including Woolworths and other famous shops. You can buy most things in Aylesbury.
Theres a Bowling Alley, tennis facilities a rugby club and lots of other clubs and activities. There is surprisingly lots to do aswell as the Bucks Museum and (I dont know if its still there) the Roald Dahl Museum. Aylesbury is also home of 96.6FM Mix 96 and 'The Ducks' Aylesbury United.
I go to quite a good school in Aylesbury, Aylesbury Grammar School. Theres also THe Sir Henry Floyd, The Aylesbury High and The Grange which kids can go to, and so I spend alot of time in Aylesbury.
i'd recomend it if you're young and bored - theres lots to do. I don't know abnout living there but I do go into town a lot its got lots of
