An area of outstanding natural beauty

The Chiltern Hills stretch from the River Thames in Oxfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire and are nationally-protected as some of the finest countryside in the UK. They're a fantastic place to explore all year round.

Autumnal Walks

Autumnal walks

The woods are becoming dressed in their autumn finery so it's time for leaf-crunching walks through some lovely Chilterns woodlands. Browse the autumn colour category on our interactive map to find the best spots.

Kite Watching

Red Kites

We're entering one of the best times of year to see the red kites as they soar over the Chiltern Hills. They have finished moulting and are looking very smart, especially on bright days when the sun lights up their rich russet feathers.
