Mini guide to Leighton Buzzard

     

Located between London and Northampton near Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard is a traditional market town with bags of charm and historic delights. The town boasts the Grand Union Canal and is well known for the Leighton Buzzard Railway, not to mention its resident's love of football.

One of the most important sights in the town is the Early English parish church (All Saints), which is reputed to be one of the finest in the country; the 13th-century church boasts ornate stone carvings and a lofty spire. The Leighton Buzzard Railway is also a major attraction and offers an hour-long tour, while the Leighton Lady is a huge barge that cruises the canal, a favourite with tourists.

The focus of the town centre is Market Square where you will find the 19th-century Town Hall and 15th-century market cross, while Broad street leads off from here and into Church Square where the 13th-century All Saints church and several old buildings are located. The High street plays host to the Tuesday and Thursday markets.

Leighton Buzzard has dozens of cafés and restaurants including many Chinese and Indian eateries, while eating a buffet lunch on the Leighton Lady is the ultimate dining experience in the town; the barge holds 54 passengers. Spectator sports are popular in Leighton, with Leighton Town Football Club and the Rugby Union Leighton Buzzard RFC being well supported.

The Leighton Buzzard Railway is only a few miles long, but the journey is riddled with level crossings, steep gradients and sharp curves making it well worth the fare. Nearby Milton Keynes is a great example of a new town, known for its shopping and church, while farther afield is the university city of Oxford, famed for its awesome skyscape and colleges.

Leighton Buzzard is served by the M1 motorway (junction 11) and the A5, and lies on the West Coast Main Line railway with five trains per hour running from London's Euston Station and several daily trains from Birmingham. Luton International Airport is the nearest and Heathrow International Airport is also within reach.
