August's Day Trip | Hambleden
One of the best ways to cope with life in a big city is to make sure you leave it as often as possible. With this aim in mind we have created a new series of Bleak House guides called ‘An Hour and A Million Miles’. This is a set of twelve day trips from London designed to inspire you leave the city for a few hours and soak up some countryside. Each trip is only an hour from London but you will feel like you’ve travelled a million miles, and possibly back a couple of centuries too.
The second in our new guides is a trip to the pretty rose-strewn village of Hambleden in Buckinghamshire (4 miles from Marlow) for a stroll through water meadows, a picnic in sun-dappled woods and a glass of cider in a charming pub.
If you can ignore the parked cars, it's easy to imagine the latter half of the twentieth century entirely passed Hambleden by. With its flint and brick cottages, 14th century church and English country gardens, it's no surprise that it's been used as a filming location for Miss Marple, Poirot, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and 101 Dalmatians.Everything you need to know for your trip to Hambleden is in our guide which you can download by clicking the button below.
We hope you love our new series of guides. Please do let us know about any trips you take.
