Travel Guide to holidays in... Amersham, Buckinghamshire, England

Amersham is a market town within London’s commuter belt and set in the Chiltern Hills. Amersham is very much a town of two halves, Old Amersham and the more modern Amersham-on-the-Hill which developed as a result of the railway station in its midst.

Old Amersham in particular provides plenty of interest for visitors with its architecture and old shops, and the town provides a good base for exploring the Chilterns. Transport facilities are good with rail, bus and road access to many areas, including London which is easily accessible via the Underground (overground!) station. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

Stretching from the banks of the Thames to the Vale Of Aylesbury, and within easy reach of London, this is the ideal place for a rural escape, as you’ll discover with one of our holiday cottages in Buckinghamshire.

The rolling Chiltern Hills and the beautiful Vale of Aylesbury make this one of the loveliest of the Home Counties, location for many of the scenes in TV’s Midsomer Murders. Visit the wonderful Stowe Park, one of the most ambitious of England’s great landscaped gardens, with its profusion of monuments, temples, grottoes, statues and ornamental lakes. Waddesdon Manor also makes a great day out from our holiday cottages in Buckinghamshire. Built in the style of a 16th Century French Chateau by the Rothschilds, it features some superb examples of French decorative art.

For a taste of the high life, take a trip to Cliveden, home of the Astors, while the museum at Bletchley Park gives a fascinating insight into World War II codebreakers and the enigma machine. Another fascinating place to visit here is the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden – great for Dahl fans of all ages.

Travelling to or from Ireland? Don't forget the ferry! Not only does it give you the freedom of taking your own car but it provides a superb experience of travelling by sea and exploring the coastline. With convenient routes between Holyhead and Dublin, or Pembroke and Rosslare, we recommend Irish Ferries for great, low-cost, transport. They are the leading Irish ferry company and provide both an excellent service, and excellent prices.

User Guides

Amersham is essentially divided into two halves, the "new" town and "old" town. The new half is well catered for with shops and restaurants, is quite bustling and so not restful. It also has a London underground station, which makes this town a commuter one, and certainly accessible to central London. If this was all there was to the town, however, it would only score 2 stars. But the town is "redeemed" by Amersham Old Town, at the bottom of the hill. This truly is worth a visit - a very historic main high street lined with attractive houses, restauarants, tea shops and specialist (and very expensive and exclusive !) shops. The Old Town is indeed attractive, and little wonder often used for filming, such as for "Midsomer Murders." There is a real feeling of wealth here. Another advantage is that the Old Town nestles in the Chiltern Hills, so a good base to walk from. Visitors may also be interested in the Protestant Martyrs Memorial, about a 20 minute walk from the Old Town. Overall, Amersham is well worth a visit... but unless you like shopping, only visit the Old Town !
