Getting There

A circular pub walk from The White Horse in Beaconsfield, within the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. The White Horse is located on one of the main thoroughfares in the market town, the perfect spot to absorb the buzzing atmosphere after your walk. The walking route explores the surrounding area, enjoying a beautiful mixture of leafy streets, open fields, broadleaf woodlands and old parkland. There is plenty of interest along the way, with history and wildlife around every turn. The walk is relatively flat for the most part, with just a couple of steady climbs along the way. It follows a mixture of surfaced pavements and paths, plus unmade paths through fields and woodlands, with some stretches that get very muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are a few road crossings to negotiate; most are within 30mph areas, but one crossing of the A355 is within the national speed limit zone and does need particular care. You will need to negotiate several gates and kissing gates (one of which is quite tight!) plus a couple of stiles (with generous fence gaps for dogs). You will cross one paddock that may be holding horses, but there is no farm livestock on route. One stretch of the walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch out for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.

Beaconsfield is easily accessed by both road and rail. The walk starts and finishes at The White Horse pub on London End (A40), close to the roundabout with the A355 and less than a mile from Junction 2 of the M40. The pub does not have its own car park, but there is roadside parking available along the length of London End. Approximate post code HP9 2JD. If you are coming by train, both Beaconsfield rail station and Seer Green rail station are within easy walking distance of the walking route.
