Took the kids (6 and nearly 3) to burn off some energy and embrace the brilliant countryside that we're so lucky to live within. They loved it as did us adults. The walk from the carpark took about 30 minutes. Without little legs that could...More

I often walk up Ivinghoe Beacon and enjoy the fantastic views. Watched a Red Kite playing on the thermals and a Kestrel catch a mouse. Great place for wildlife lovers.

If you like a good walk with great views and a nice ridge then this is the best place in the Chilterns. Just over 2 miles in a circular walk from the main car park. It will take you 50 minutes if you do not...More

Ivinghoe Beacon is such beautiful place, it's no wonder that it was chosen as a film location for the discovery of a “Portkey” in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It's breezy up on the top, and sensible footwear is required, but this is...More

Not much parking nearby, but several parks within a mile, and walk along the ridge. Some steep bits, no shelter, slippery if wet. Great views in all direction especially North and West.A board on the summit guides you.

If, like me, you want a challenge then climb the steep side of this hill. This is the start of the Ridge Way and a great place to walk to the top and take in the amazing view of the area. There is a triangulation...More

Park in Tring railway station and meander through the woods until you reach the hills. By no means a tough climb for seasoned walkers but a good walk for the less fit. Once at the top the views are great and then treat yourself to...More

Lovely Hills to wander over and see some very nice landscapes from every side. Drive up the narrow road to what seemed to be a free car park and then consult map to decide on a walk. Get a very nice day and find a...More

I regularly walk the route with my dog but never see dogs running loose out of control. It is a deer park and there are rules about keeping dogs under control at all times due to deer attacks. Enjoy your walk up from the... More
