Buckinghamshire is a “ceremonial and non-metropolitan” primarily residential county in South East England. The region is best known for its spectacular open countryside and ever-present natural beauty. The town of Aylesbury is the largest ceremonial town in the county.
The Buckinghamshire County Council administers governmental responsibilities for the county which is divided into four districts; Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe. The Borough of Milton Keynes is an independent authority that cooperates with the county on many functions but is not under the auspices of the Buckinghamshire County Council. Milton Keynes is the largest ceremonial town in the borough while High Wycombe is the largest town in the non-metro county.
