Living in High Wycombe

High Wycombe is a large town in the southern English country of Buckinghamshire. With a population of approximately 120,000, it is a bustling center of industry and a busy market town, with a market that has been held in the center since the Middle Ages. Known traditionally for furniture production, the town and the local football team are sometimes referred to as 'The Chairboys'. Expats living in High Wycombe will find the city's pace of life comfortable and local amenities good, with plenty of heritage to explore and a lively cultural scene. The Guildhall has stood in the town center since the mid 1700s, and local points of interest include the Wycombe Museum and Hughenden Manor, a grand Victorian mansion that once was home to Benjamin Disraeli, a famous British Prime Minister. And the local 'Transition Town High Wycombe' initiative is one of several movements around the country towards greater environmental and community spirit.
