It's looking like another wet and windy weekend across Bucks - but don't let the bad weather keep you locked away indoors.

Following the Met Office's issuing of a yellow weather warning for heavy rain and thunder across the county today, it would be all too easy to write off any and all of your Saturday plans.

Though the current forecast is perhaps not what we would expect from the summer months, even in the UK, there are plenty of ways to make the most of the wide-ranging attractions Bucks has to offer without getting too wet or windswept. 

Here is our list of the top five ways you can enjoy your summer break, despite less-than-favourable weather conditions. 

1. The National Museum of Computing

For a cultural afternoon indoors, why not head over to the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley?

Recognised among England's top 100 'irreplaceable places', it is host to the world's largest collection of functional historic computers and offers educational insight into Britain's wartime codebreaking efforts. 

Tickets begin at £10 per person. To learn more, visit

2. Big Rock Hub

After a more hands-on way to spend your day? The Big Rock-Climbing Centre in Milton Keynes is a huge indoor climbing wall that caters to all ability levels.

It's sure to be a hit with the kids and an easy way to tire them out. Tickets start at £7.70 for adults and £3.85 for children under six. 


3. Marlow Bookshop

If you're looking for somewhere cosy to shelter from the rain, you can't go too far wrong with a bookshop.

The Marlow Bookshop is one such top-shelf gem - packed with a wide range of books spanning all genres and age ranges.

4. Waddesdon Manor

Another culturally enriching way to spend the rainy weekend could be embarking on a tour of Hughenden Manor, the former home of Victorian Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli and the base of a secret World War Two map-making operation.
