Why you need to visit Amersham UK
My Hometown Amersham

The town I was brought up in most of my life is Amersham. It Is a small market town and civil parish within Chiltern district in Buckinghamshire, England, 27 miles northwest of London, in the Chiltern Hills. The population of Amersham is only around 17,000 which is nice. As when you walk around you are always likely to see someone you know. There are two parts of Amersham: the old town that has the really old buildings, and Amersham on the Hill: the newer part built up in the 50’s.  The locals call it Top Amersham or Top town.

There is not a lot to do in Amersham but it has a few nice cafes and restaurants surrounded by beautiful nature from farmers fields to woods where you can walk around. It is part of the Chiltern Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty! As well as this there are a wide variety of pubs some as old as 1100 ad. The main thing I love about Amersham is the old buildings – half-timbered and old cottages.

Amersham has been a filming location for a lot of TV shows and films such as Midsomer Murders, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Celebrity Masterchef and Cuckoo to name a few.

Things to do in Amersham

  1. Take the train to London

To get into London it will only take you 45 minutes on the train and that is not very long.  The advantage of having a train line to London means there are more amazing things to do in London.

 

  1. Chilton’s pools and rock climbing

The swimming pool is not very big and comes with a few slides if you want to do something on a hot summers day.
