Lots of walks on top of downs, or walk through woods and fields to the Whipsnade Tree Cathedral, or as far as Ivinhoe Beacon. Lots of hisory including the '5 Knolls' ancient burial ground.

The shop and cafe is lovely and the view from the top of a cliff near the car park is of course, gorgeous but the management seems to have failed to notice the several 'dens' going on near the Bison hill car park area which...More

Peaceful and quiet with stunning views. Day or night the ideal place just to go and catch your breath and get away from the hustle and bustle of like.

A great place to walk the dog and meet other dogs. Inca and I visit 2 or 3 times a week and enjoy several different walks over and around the Downs. The area is well looked after and volunteers do a great job litter picking.

We arrived at Dunstable Downs on an autumn morning. It was obvious from the many people wandering around with hats, scarves and gloves on that we would need to wrap up warm. Parking is £3 for the day (or free to NT members). Once parked...More

Lovely area for walks and the cafe did an amazing pumpkin cake. Very long queues though and may benefit from re-organisation of staff at the counter

Beautiful afternoon walking along the downs. Making it more memorable walking over the parachute gliders, kites flying and an assortment of dogs playing. What a joyful afternoon with my husband and he bought me ice cream. Very special place, everyday is different. Highly recommended.
