Local life

Buckinghamshire is home to some of the most picturesque locations in England and the quaint market town of Amersham is no exception.

It offers the very best of both worlds, with rolling Chilterns countryside, and an historic high street with plenty of independent boutiques and restaurants in the Old Town. Amersham on the Hill (the new town) has all your daily necessities covered, including a brand new leisure centre (Chilterns Lifestyle Centre).

Connectivity is excellent. The M40 runs through the county, providing easy access to Birmingham and Oxford. The M25 is also nearby, providing quick links to London and Heathrow Airport. The county is well served by train, with fast and frequent services to London Marylebone, Birmingham, and beyond. The Metropolitan tube line also runs through county with Amersham at the end of the line.

Friendly community

Schools are simply excellent and highly sought-after, with two of the best Grammar schools in the country – Dr Challoner’s Grammar School for boys and Dr Challoner’s High School for girls. There are also several independent schools as well, from the The Beacon and Godstowe School prep schools to a varied choice at senior level.

If you fancy a bite to eat, the Michelin-starred Artichoke restaurant is renowned for its accomplished food in a 16th century building with contemporary style and is just one of the many eateries in the vicinity. Set in the Chilterns, The Red Lion at Coleshill has something for everyone, and The Griffin in Old Amersham proudly boasts ‘the best Sunday lunch’.

You’ll find a superstore and food halls in Amersham itself, including M&S and Waitrose, or simply order Ocado, darling. And when it comes to the great outdoors, the hardest part will be deciding which sporting option to pursue. From golf to tennis, and horse riding to cycling, it’s all here. And for breathtaking walks, the Chiltern Hills and Penn Wood are hard to beat.
