High Wycombe, often referred to as simply "Wycombe" and not to be confused with West Wycombe, is a city in the county of Buckinghamshire in southern England. It is the second-largest city in Buckinghamshire after Milton Keynes, and is located 29 miles from London.

It was first mentioned in history as "Wicumun" in 970 AD. A church was built here in 1086, and the town was given "market town" status in 1222.

Today, it is best known for its schools, historic buildings, and downtown area.
