The Bucks Free Press is a weekly local newspaper, published every Friday and covering the area surrounding High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. It was first published on 19 December 1856.

It covers news for south Buckinghamshire - focusing primarily on High Wycombe, Amersham, Princes Risborough and Beaconsfield - as opposed to the entire county.

Marlow has its own edition called the Marlow Free Press which has a number of changed pages.

The paper covers local news, features, leisure and sport. The sport section features extensive coverage of Wycombe Wanderers football club who play at Adams Park, High Wycombe.

Alongside the main Bucks Free Press paper, the Bucks Free Press group also publishes the free South Bucks Star every Thursday.

The fantasy novelist Terry Pratchett started his career as a journalist with the Bucks Free Press in 1965.
