Mini guide to Amersham

     

Amersham is a small town on the outskirts of London in Buckinghamshire, where appearances haven't changed much since the 17th century. It is joined by Amersham-on-the-Hill, the last stop on the London Underground, and boasts a peaceful atmosphere full of historic charm and renowned shopping.

Amersham's High street is particularly wide, with buildings from various periods lining each side. St Mary's Parish Church was built in the 13th century and has had extensions and renovations made over subsequent centuries. Of particular interest are the nave and the 15th and 16th century brasses in the chancel. Surrounding the church are interesting Georgian buildings, while nearby are the market square and the late 17th century Market Hall. On a hill above Amersham is the Martyrs' Memorial to those who were burnt at the stake for religious beliefs during the reign of Queen Mary.

A number of restaurants offering a variety of cuisine including Italian, French, Chinese and Indian can be found in Amersham; while there are also plenty of pubs offering more traditional food and entertainment. The town is well known for its shopping and boasts a wide selection of antique and craft shops, as well as designer boutiques. Amersham-on-the-Hill is home to a shopping center and leisure complex.

Buckinghamshire boasts picturesque natural scenery, including the Chiltern Hills and the River Thames and is dotted with charming rural villages. The Vale of Aylesbury offers visitors several magnificent manor houses including the French Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor and Ascott House, a Jacobean manor with stunning gardens. Bekonscot Model Village in Beaconsfield is the oldest model village in the world and recreates a 1930s rural English village.

Amersham lies eight kilometres from the M25 motorway at junction 17, while the town is also serviced by the London Underground and above ground rail networks. A local bus network services local towns as well as regional centres, while Heathrow International Airport is under an hour away via public transport.
