NEW: Visit the Chilterns

For our new website, we’ve integrated a whole new section full of information on the best things to see, do and eat in the Chilterns.

You can read about Chilterns market towns and villages, plus there is a whole section on food and drink, from tours and tastings at distilleries and vineyards, the best picnic viewspots, afternoon teas, pub stops and farms with cafes.

There’s a page on culture, from museums to cinemas to festivals, a page for family days out, and a page on great places to explore nature.

Many small businesses in the Chilterns have put together special bookable experiences, from landscape photography workshops to painting, bushcraft to e-bike tours, wildlife walks to hot air ballooning, foraging and wild cooking to children’s farm experiences.
