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 on Sunday 23rd August and run every Sunday until the end of October. £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 on Saturday 22nd August and will run every Saturday until the end of September. £5 for adults, children are free.

For both walks pre-booking is essential. Each group is now limited to five people, led by a museum volunteer guide. Each guide will be wearing a visor and will ask separate groups within the walk to maintain a 2m distance from each other. The minimum number of bookings required for this walk is 3 people. If fewer than three people are booked on to the walk by midday the Friday before the walk, it will be cancelled and you will be notified on the Friday.

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.
