Advantages: You are bound to find plenty of things to do
Disadvantages: Not the greatest shops
Aylesbury is a town situated in the county Bucks (buckinghamshire). It is a peaceful town town with quite a lot of things to amuse you but not as many as say milton keynes or high wycombe.
Recently Aylesbury has been undergoing various changes to make the town more popular by building a new odeon cinema with a one of its kind hollywood suite, and a new multiplex swimming that will be opening sometime next year.
But if it is shops you are after Aylebury isn't the place place to go, yes it has two malls hayleys and friars square but there is that bigger shops. There is the obvious fast food places like mcdonalds and deep pan pizza and a pizza express that just opened and the basic shops like game, beaties, bhs, dixons etc. There is a few good few bigger shops like halfords and homebase on the outskirts of aylesbury and of course argos but nothing too amazing. There is new shops opening up all the time and believe me it is getting a lot better.
Generally aylesbury is a good town because if it is an evening out at a restaurant or spending time on walks there is plenty of places to cover your needs.
The sports facillaties available are also good as the council set up special fun sport activities during the holidays and there is various clubs to join of different sports. For example the Aylesbury Tennis Court centre where there is a hole load of courts a cricket pitch squash courts and also table tennis tables. In the field next door as well you will find a rugby pitch and two football pitches that are used by the Aylesbury Grammar school and the Grange.
Aylesbury Grammar is a highly rated Grammar school in england and came ranked in the top 50 for the best schools in england. It has the second best facillities for design and technology in the whole of england.
If all this doesn't fill your needs and you want a quiet day out you can just pop along to the local golf course for a few rounds of golf if.
There is one problem though if you have a teenage son or daughter and they are interested in skating and bmxing they isn't a skatepark in aylesbury itself. They will hav to go out of aylesbury to find one but hopefully the council will see this problem and solve it as i am sure they have enough money!!
So if you are thinging of visiting it is worth it but plan your visit before you come!!!
