Welcome to the Naturally Outstanding Chilterns
The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is everything you would like it to be.
Summer is here! We've included our favourite summer events below but don’t miss strolling down to riverbank opposite the romantic Temple Island (it’s over a mile, so don’t do this in heels) to watch the explosive Henley Regatta starts.
Choose the Chilterns for activity and exploration, peace and quiet, entertainment or indulgence: this lovely countryside on London’s doorstep has all you need for a really memorable break. In 324 square miles of superb scenery, intriguing attractions, tucked-away villages and market towns, there’s always something more to be discovered.
From central London train to Chilterns trail in just 40 minutes and 30 minutes from Oxford, the Naturally Outstanding Chilterns is one of the most accessible areas of countryside in the UK. The area has excellent rail and bus links, it is served by four main rail lines, the River Thames and the London Underground Metropolitan line, with frequent trains and a journey time of less than an hour from London.
