Wicken is a peaceful village and civil parish in the English county of Northamptonshire. It is about one mile north of the A422 road between Milton Keynes and Buckingham and 3 miles from Stony Stratford forming part of South Northamptonshire district. Although the village has changed over the years with new houses built and such places as the post office, bake house and the old forge becoming dwelling houses, Wicken still retains the charm of a country village.

The White Lion public house based next door is superb and serves food and beverages for the whole family. The independent private Junior school of Akeley Wood is also here and is highly respected. The towns of Stony Stratford and Buckingham provide schooling, leisure activities and day to day shopping while Milton Keynes provides extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities, including one the largest undercover shopping centres in the UK, night clubs, restaurants, bars, cinema complex, bowling alley and further education.
