2bOutdoors - Old Amersham and the Royal Standard of England Pub

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 10:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a circular 14.5 mile walk from the beautiful market town of Old Amersham, visiting on route the lovely village of Coleshill and lunch at the Royal Standard of England pub near Beaconsfield (the oldest freehouse in England).

We start our hike at Amersham station and make our way to Old Amersham, an important post for stagecoaches with several ancient inns. Much more recently, two of the Inns - the Crown and the half-timbered King's Arms, both featured in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral.

After old Amersham we take the South Bucks way along the Misbourne Valley and then into Penn woods.  After lunch at the Royal Standard of England pub near Beaconsfield, we walk a further 6 miles back to Amersham via Great Beard's woods and Coleshill.  We should be back at the station between 5 and 6 pm.


We will have lunch at the Royal Standard of England Pub at Forty Green near Beaconsfield.  This is a wonderful lunch location, a historic and atmospheric old pub that serves great food:


Meet at Amersham train/tube station

We will meet at Amersham to leave the station at 10:15.  You can use Oyster to Amersham and there are two routes:

1.  From Marylebone with Chiltern Railway.  Meet at 9:15am for the the train to Amersham that leaves at 9:42 am (meet outside Patisserie Valerie).

2.  Metropolitan line (see the following PDF for train times)
