Walking and Cycling Guides

Plan your summer outings with one of our colourful, informative publications on walking or cycling in the Chilterns. We have walks of all lengths across the area or why not try a day ride on the beautiful Chilterns Cycleway?

Local WW1 History

WW1 history in the Chilterns

During WW1 thousands of troops were trained near Berkhamsted and they left behind a legacy of training trenches, some of which you can still see today.

Orchids Galore

Orchids galore

The chalk downland is blooming with wildflowers and some sites are covered with a profusion of native orchids. Why not visit a local downland nature reserve and enjoy this spectacle of summer? Or learn more on our Chalk Habitats Day 2014. 


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.
