Guided Countryside Walks - Heart of the Chilterns

Our guided walks start off at Great Missenden Station, where we meet and discuss the Chiltern Hills trail planned for the day over a cup of freshly roasted coffee from the Café on Platform 1.

Our association with the local taxi company means that we can take you even further afield and guide you back to the base or rescue you if the weather turns bad. We have walks that will take you on to other local stations from which you can either ride back to Great Missenden or back to London.

For your further interest, we can cater for these walks too, guide you to one of our favourite “beauty spots” and deliver your picnic lunch or afternoon tea created by Ooh La La Odette. There’s no need to worry on the weather front either, as we will have a Gazebo handy just in case you need to find cover.

There is simply no end to the things we can do for you to make your day in this part of the Chilterns memorable!
