Princes Risborough is a small town in Buckinghamshire. It's on the A4010 about halfway between High Wycombe and Aylesbury. The population is around 10,000. Why "Princes"? Because Edward the Black Prince apparently had a palace near St Mary's Church. (The site is now, in the finest British tradition, a car park.) Before then, it was "Great Risborough" on the same pattern as Great Missenden, and there was a Little Risborough, which changed its name to Monks Risborough as it had a monastery (no longer extant).
Getting information about Princes Risborough ("Risborough" for short) is very easy. No emigrants to other parts of the world seem to have called anywhere else by the same name, so a Google search for "Princes Risborough" (with the quotes) will get useful results. Unless you want to look a chump, don't say or write "Princess Risborough".
By road: A4010 from Junction 4 of the M40 south of High Wycombe, or B4009 from J6 - both about 10 miles of driving from the motorway junction.
By rail: Chiltern Line trains from London (Marylebone) or Birmingham (Moor Street or Snow Hill). There's a branch line from Risborough to Aylesbury, but trains are not frequent.
By bus: the local 300 bus route runs from High Wycombe to Aylesbury and both stop in Risborough.
Please note: Prince's Risborough operates a strict 'no trainers' policy. Hoodies may be worn in Princes Risborough, but only with the hood down.
For the town itself, you can just use your feet. For the local countryside, you need a car or bike unless the bus routes or railway lines suit.
Get into local countryside for walks - the Ridgeway National Trail and Icknield way pass close by.
Visit the Tourist Information Centre in Horns Lane opposite Marks & Spencers to find out whats on in and around Princes Risborough. Walking & cycling leaflets available.
Food: Clark's is an excellent butcher. Tesco and Marks and Spencers Simply Food supermarkets are just what you'd expect, though anyone used to modern Tesco stores should be aware that this one is tiny. There's a deli in the High Street. Thursday sees a street market with some stalls selling some more exotic items. There are about four charity shops with the usual range of stuff - reasonable quality as Risborough has plenty of wealthy people.
Pretty much what you'd expect: Chinese takeaway. Three curry houses of which Radhuni, which replaced a Chinese in the helf-timbered old library building, is the most ambitious, and an expensive one, Coco Tamarind, on the road to Aylesbury. Snacks/sandwiches at the deli and a sandwich bar. Many pubs in and around town will serve you food.
The one chinese restaurant closed in 2009 and is to re-open as yet another curry house - so if you want a choice of fare, perhaps this is not the town for you.
About four pubs.
No hotel in town. B&B called Drifters Lodge, a short drvie outside town centre. You can also stay at the Black Prince pub, now reborn as the Poppyseed hotel, with another (wait for it) Indian restaurant, or there is a B&B down the road in Longwick.
