Join a guided walk of Amersham Old Town for a fascinating insight into the history of the town, its inhabitants and its development. Here you will see many of the details of the town that you may never have noticed before. The walk is one and a half to 2 hours in duration . The walks leave from the museum at 2.30pm on Sundays. The walks will resume in 2021. £5 for adults, children are free.

Join a guided Tudor Walk to learn about life – and death – in 16th century Amersham – food and drink, clothing, health and the Lollards martyrs. These walks are led by guides in Tudor costume and start from the museum at 2.30pm on Saturdays. These resume in Spring 2021. £5 for adults, children are free.

For both walks pre-booking is essential. Each guide will be wearing a visor and will ask separate groups within the walk to maintain a 2m distance from each other. 

The museum welcomes pre-arranged walks for groups outside normal museum opening hours, during the day or in the evening. Special walks for groups or schools can be organised at any time of the year.

We are putting together an anthology of local walks, which we hope to publish in a booklet. Do you have a favourite walk that you would like to share? If so please email us with details.

Martin Pounce has given us details of parts of two drovers routes to London, which you can walk locally.
