OLD AMERSHAM

 

This lovely quaint town, just a 5-minute car ride away is as quintessential English as you are going to find. It dates back to the 15th Century and used to be a Coaching Inn town. Old Amersham also offers an array of shops which are all very characterful and lovely to wander around. The lovely choice of cafes & restaurants is also an attractive point of Old Amersham too; 'Grocer's 91' cafe in the town is popular with people from the local area. 'St Mary's Church' is also lovely to visit and they often have a bandstand on a Sunday. There are also lovely other restaurants like Coté Brasserie, Zaza's, Gilbeys,  but if you're looking for something more special then the Michelin star restaurant 'The Artichoke' will have to be the spot you hit, it is well-renowned in and outside the area.
