The Old Gaol, built in 1748 in the style of a castle, has now been converted to a museum and also house the Tourist Information Centre.

  View of High Street, Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, England   Buckingham

Part of High Street showing a timber-framed building which is probably 17th century in origin. This is just behind the Old Gaol in the picture above.

High Street consists of two parts; the one you see here and another one parallel to it, out of the right of the picture, with the two sections seperated by an 'island'.

The entrance to the main car park is just off to the right.
