Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel is our prime sponsor for the Chilterns Walking Festival. The hotel is ideally located with lots of walks and rides from the doorstep, including the Ridgeway National Trail, the Icknield Way and the Chilterns Cycleway close by. There are circular walks too taking you up into the beechwoods and the nearby Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve. The Lambert Hotel welcomes walkers and cyclists, it is an ideal stop-off for lunch or tea and is a great touring based for those staying over. The hotel is located near J6 of the M40 and there is a 24 hour bus service (the Oxford Tube)between London and Oxford which stops just a few minutes walk from the hotel.
Could this be you? We are seeking additional sponsors to enable the festival to continue going from strength to strength - get in touch with AWeiss@chilternsaonb.org if you'd like to know more!
