Chilterns Walking Festival Chilterns Walking Festival Logo

The Chilterns Walking festival runs twice a year in Spring and Autumn. 

The festival invites experienced and novice walkers alike to explore the landscapes, locations and legends of The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Each festival has an exciting programme of walks, talks and special events.  For example the Autumn 2017 festival included:

  • A fascinating walk taking in Chequers and The Ridgeway National Trail, combined with meeting the local farmer, refreshments and a visit to Buckmoorend Farm Shop.
  • A private tour of the Lacey Green windmill restored by the Chiltern Society, followed by a beautiful circular walk around the Lacey Green area with stunning views, passing through quiet valleys.
  • Walk through the beautiful rolling hills of the southern Chilterns before being rewarded with a stop at the Rebellion brewery shop to sample some local beers!
  • Meander through the Chiltern Open Air Museum’s woodland landscape, learning more about the Museum's hidden meadow, and exploring the Museum and its rescued historic buildings.
  • A series of three HS2 walks - in Wendover, Misbourne and Denham - offering walkers the opportunity to view the beautiful Chilterns landscape before it changes forever.
  • Sketching walks led by a wildlife artist and Countryside Officer
