''This article is about the town of Buckingham in Buckinghamshire, England. For other places in the world called Buckingham see Buckingham (disambiguation)

Buckingham is situated in north Buckinghamshire approximately 10 miles from the border with Northamptonshire. Although Buckingham was the original county town, this role is today served instead by Aylesbury.

There are two main roads crossing Buckingham, namely the A421 and the A413. Leaving Buckingham on the A413 northbound you will pass through the village of Maids Moreton.

The town is home to the UK's first and only private university, which was founded as the University College of Buckingham in 1976, before becoming the University of Buckingham in 1983. Unlike other UK universities, most of its students are from overseas.

Nearby towns include Aylesbury, Bicester, Brackley, Milton Keynes, and Towcester.
