Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire, South East England. It is a large ancient market town with several historic pubs, is home to the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery and, since 2010, the 1,200 seat Waterside Theatre. The town is recognised as the spiritual cradle of the Paralympic Games. It is situated in central Buckinghamshire, midway between High Wycombe and Milton Keynes. Aylesbury was awarded Garden Town status by the Government on 2 January 2017.
The town is a major commercial centre and the market still meets on the cobbles of the old Market Square four days a week. Three major industrial and commercial centres make sure the town has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
A £150 million Arla Foods 'megadairy' opened just off the A41 in nearby Aston Clinton in November 2013, roughly 3.5 mi (6 km) from the town centre and is a major employer in the area. Traffic improvement measures were paid for by Arla in order to reduce the impact of congestion and pollution.
Aylesbury has a population of over 83,410 people.
Aylesbury is twinned with the French town of Bourg-en-Bresse.
