Please be aware that in some more rural areas might have low phone signal may interfere with app functionality. If low signal is causing problems, we recommend turning on virtual mode.
Once you choose a route, the app will let you know some key information – whether the route is family friendly, accessible, good for a dog walk and whether there are public toilets and food and drink available in the area. All routes have audio options!
What’s the best place to start for trying a route with children?
We recommend starting with Heritage for Kids or the Green route, both have lots of activities to try.
Absolutely not! Buxplore saves your progress, so feel free to take as much time as you like over each route.
Some of the routes cover large areas of Buckingham, and are designed to be completed a little at a time. Other routes can easily be completed in an hour or two.
We know that many people in our community are shielding or self-isolation. If you would like to try the app but are not able to visit the locations in person, you can visit the app on your smart phone or via a computer.
