What we're about

Chilternwalks offers guided walks that are ideal if you wish to experience the wonderful flora and fauna of the Chilterns, get outside for exercise, or just to meet like minded people.

For each walk, in order to make the most of the outdoors, please bring snacks, water and a packed lunch, however if the weather is not suitable I will where possible try to build in a stop for a pub lunch. Also, for anyone wishing for refreshments at the end of the walk there is usually ample opportunity to visit a Chiltern pub near the train stations.

Many of the walks start and finish near a Chilterns line railway station making access from London Marylebone station ideal for a day in the Chilterns.
