Welcome to Doylestown


The city of Doylestown, about 25 miles (40km) north of Philadelphia in the centre of Bucks County (of which it is the county capital), is renowned for its Historic District which contains more than 1,000 structures dating from between 1851 and 1910. This treasure-trove of architectural heritage, bounded by Union, Cottage and East Ashland Streets, Hillside Avenue and South and North-West Streets, draws hundreds of visitors to the city, which has been named one of a 'Dozen Distinctive Destinations' by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The city also offers inviting antique and handcraft shops, numerous excellent restaurants and in the surrounding Bucks County countryside there are vast recreational possibilities, from fishing and boating on the scenic Delaware River to hiking through nature trails and discovering surprises like the 300-year-old Fallsington village. Nearby too is the site where George Washington crossed the Delaware River and changed the course of the American Revolution.
