High Street in High Wycombe on Market Day by Vidya Crawley

High Wycombe is one of England’s thriving market towns. It’s a place with a bustling atmosphere, lots of shopping opportunities and a lively centre with a wide variety of places to eat and to be entertained. It has the Eden shopping and leisure complex, which includes a twelve screen cinema and a bowling alley, where you can let off steam and enjoy a lively evening. It also has the Wycombe Swan Theatre, which plays host to local, national, and international touring companies and soloists. If culture and rich English heritage interest you, Wycombe Museum will no doubt be a place you’ll want to visit. Set in lovely grounds, the museum offers an insight into the district’s diverse history, as well as a beautiful collection of Windsor chairs.

Visitors to the area always find that High Wycombe Car Hire is an excellent way to explore. The town has a lot to do, but it’s also surrounded by the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. Picturesque villages and historic towns make it the ideal place to stay whilst exploring these pretty surroundings. There opportunities for walking, with paths along the Ridgeway and River Thames, there are secluded valleys, nature reserves and woods, where writers such as Milton, Elliot, and Mary Shelley all took their inspiration. You can visit Hughenden Manor, now owned by the National Trust, but formally the home of one of Great Britain’s Prime Minister’s Benjamin Disraeli, there’s also an opportunity to go deep underground at Hellfire Caves in West Wycombe, less than fifteen minutes away.

Whatever your interests, High Wycombe and its surrounding countryside are easily accessible when you hire your own car.

Hereford Car Hire

The city of Hereford is a traditional countryside city situated on the banks of the River Wye. It is home to black and white buildings, riverside walks and the Hereford Bull, one of the most famous breeds of cattle in the world. The city is in an area known as The Marches, the border between England and Wales, where the air is clean, and the countryside is still unspoiled.

Despite its old world charm the city caters for everyone with all the popular high street shops, as well as small boutiques which offer everything from locally produced cheeses and cider to designer clothing. There are fast food chains, but there are also fine dining options with fish from the River Wye, and of course a visit to Hereford would not be complete without a taste of real Hereford steak. Evening entertainment can be as loud or as quiet as you wish. There are tiny bars and restaurants as well as some of the larger chains, there is a choice of nightclubs as well as opportunities to visit the theatre or cinema, where performances can be by professional touring companies or the local amateur operatic society.

Hereford has a lot to offer its visitors, but just outside, the city is surrounded by small black and white villages with corner shops, tiny post offices, and riverside walks. This is where you can enjoy picnic spots and country pubs, perfect places for enjoying a lazy afternoon by the river.

If you're in Hereford, Hereford Car Hire is the perfect way to explore the city and the local black and white villages nearby at low rates, and in your own time.
