Beautiful English Countryside...Just Outside London
Beautiful English countryside begins. . . just outside London. Our tour takes us to the Chiltern Hills, officially designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). Only 33 such areas exist in all of England.
The Chilterns are less than a 90 minute drive from central London. The idea behind this tour is that we spend time sightseeing and visiting beautiful countryside locations, NOT driving for hours and hours. We visit:
Definitely: ancient villages, medieval churches, nice old pubs (for eating & drinking), winding lanes, rolling hills, wooded glades + Film & TV locations (Chitty Chitty, Vicar of Dibley, Midsomer Murders).
Maybe: bluebell woodlands (in spring), grazing muntjack deer (they're quite shy), cows, sheep, sun, blue skies, cloud, rain or snow (dress for the weather).
Monday - Friday Tour.
Traditional English pubs
Film & TV locations
Lunch: Usually a nice old pub.
No one else does this tour. The rest is a secret.
