Wendover's a small, historic market town, full of immense charm and character, attractively set at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, on the edge of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The town has an excellent rail service to London Marylebone, which is less than 50 minutes away on the Chiltern Line. There is also a regular bus service into Aylesbury, the nearest large town.
With a population of around 8,500, the town's a thriving tourist centre and is renowned for its pubs, cafes and restaurants. It has a wealth of shops, as well as weekly markets, set in a conservation area. Many of its buildings are of architectural and historical interest, including the 16th century Red Lion hotel, which has played host to many famous names, including Oliver Cromwell and Sir Robert Louis Stevenson. The surrounding countryside is criss-crossed by 33 miles of public paths and bridleways, which take you over the open chalk downland of Coombe Hill, or the shaded woods of Boddington Hill, making the area popular for walking, cycling and horse-riding.
Wendover is well-served by essential services such as banks, building societies, doctors and dentists and has a range of pre-school nurseries, as well as its own infant, junior and secondary schools.
There are nearly 3,000 people employed in Wendover and in Tring Business Park, the major employment site in the area.
