The Chilterns Walking Festival is a brand new festival for 2017, run by the Chilterns Conservation Board, which aims to celebrate the fantastic scenery, countryside, heritage, food and drink and local businesses which are so abundant in the Chilterns.
A stone’s throw from the major towns and cities of London, Oxford, High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead, Windsor, Reading, Aylesbury, Milton Keynes and Luton, the Chilterns is 324 square miles of superb scenery, intriguing attractions, tucked-away villages and market towns. Join us on a walk for the day, or why not make a short break out of it and explore what this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer.
The first festival programme runs from 15th – 29th May 2017 and covers guided walks and events, cherished seasonal highlights like woodland bluebell trails, and new themed walks on topics including Chilterns Food and Drink, heritage, Hillforts and popular culture such as locations filmed for TVs popular Midsomer Murders series.
The first walks will be available and bookable at the end of January 2017, with more being added all the time. In the meantime, keep an eye on this page, follow us on Facebook , Twitter, or sign up for our newsletter to find out when the full programme is released!
Also – we’ll be announcing dates for our Sept/Oct 2017 festival very soon!
