You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Dental Surgeries

Meadow Walk Dental Practice

1B Meadow Walk, Buckingham MK18 1RS, UK – 01280 812701

I am a longstanding patient at Meadow Walk Practice, and for good reasons. The staff are all welcoming and very professional and the surgery never gives the feeling of rushing dental patients through the processes involved. Advice is always proactive in that it is about long term dental care, and a willingness to allow patients to ask questions in order to be a partner in the treatment process. There is a professional ethos in the reception area which is really important, and the dental hygiene service is first class. I value the dentistry highly and would recommend this practice to anyone.

I've been a patient here for over 20 years. I can honestly say I have always found the practice to be highly professional and a friendly place to visit. Visits to the dentist are not one of my favourite pastimes 🤔, but here the experience is conducted with care and understanding. They always fully explain proceedures make you feel at ease. I can't reccomend them to highly. Andy, Buckingham.

Buckingham House Dental & Eye Care

7 High St, Buckingham MK18 1NT, UK – 01280 821927

After 25+ years of not seeing a dentist due to being scared (like most) I decided to visit. Receptionist (Kerry) was very helpful and polite, as was the other lady who booked me in. My visit was to get the ball rolling and to look forward to healthier and nicer looking teeth...however as I suffer with chronic anxiety and OCD it was not the greatest visit - the female dentist made constant jokes about pain etc - even though I had told her about my condition. I have spent all night worrying and I have not slept, due to the work that needs doing and the jokey way the dentist was with me (and we wonder why people are scared) - I had to make small talk and reassure myself by being nice to her (even though she made me feel so bad). My anxiety / condition is asking me whether I get the work done at all. If I do go ahead I will ask to see a different, more thoughtful dentist! I did tell the receptionist on the way out about this, I said I assume it was banter but really, its not something people need!

I've always hated visiting the Dentist after some pretty horrific 70s/80s dental experiences; I was traumatised! (Think of the film "The Marathon Man" that's close!) However, Dentist Amajot and Nurse Jess (hope I got your names right, please correct me if I've messed up on that!) have been nothing short of amazing. Kind, gentle, encouraging and funny, they made a very unpleasant extraction sooo much easier with their humour and compassion. Aftercare has been great too, including gently berating me for being a smoker and offering help to quit (hmmmm) Thank you, Amarjot and Jess. I wish you could have been my dentist and nurse when I was a child. Marking you down a bit because you didn't give me a sticker...

The Swan Practice North End Surgery

High St, Buckingham MK18 1NU, UK – 01280 818600

Really gone downhill. Feel processed rather than listened to (a few staff are the exception to this.) Has lost a lot of what made it special.

Used to be very good, but since merging and holding a monopoly in Buckingham it has become difficult to make appointments and sometimes these are changed without notice. It has become very bureaucratic treating people as numbers rather than human beings.

Verney Cl, Buckingham MK18 1JP, UK – 01280 822777

Very short waiting times and good GPs

They are a good doctors practice with helpful and professional staff happy to help

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

St Peter & St Paul's Church

Castle St, Buckingham MK18 1BS, UK – 01280 821509

This is an amazing parish church. It is really beautiful but what is so special about it is how much people thee care for the community. You can get a free 3-course lunch on Tuesdays! They operate a Foodbank and on Saturday mornings there is a free drop-in 'Coffee Service'. The Ark toddler group sees 60-80 toddlers and their carers every Thursday in term-time. Sundays are great too with different styles of services to suit all tastes. I love the band-led service in the morning for families.

Beautiful tranquil church

The Buckingham Fort

17 West St, Buckingham MK18 1HE, UK – 01280 822842

Having lived in Milton Keynes for the past 20 years, this was the first time we visited this restaurant and my entire family loved all the food ordered. Can't wait to try many more dishes in the very near future. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, definitely recommend.

First visit, lovely fresh ingredients and the food was extremely tasty. The staff were helpful and friendly and couldn't help enough despite the fact we were the last customers there! 😀 We will be back!

Thornborough Pre-school

The Pavillion, Sir Harry Moore Playing Field,, Back St, Thornborough MK18 2DH, UK – 07814 137265

Wonderful, friendly village preschool set in the Pavilion with fantastic outside space providing lots of opportunity for fresh air and running around, just perfect for my energetic 3 year old!! He settled here so quickly and has established some really strong friendships, he literally cannot wait to get there each morning! The staff are highly experienced, fun, kind and patient and my son adores them all. My younger son is chomping at the bit to join his brother with all the fun as soon as he is old enough. I cannot recommend this fantastic community Preschool highly enough, I feel my boys are very lucky to have such a place to enjoy.

Thornborough Preschool has been fantastic for my son! Situated in a lovely village, with lots of outside space! The staff are very friendly and my son is always coming home having learnt new and wonderful things! He often asks to go on the weekends! I highly recommend!

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 6m digital planetarium experience to 90 Year 5 pupils at Buckingham Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the caretaker and teacher and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The morning was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station and joining UK scientists in the search for life in the Solar System and beyond. Thank you Buckingham Primary for a very pleasant visit.
