Amersham Area Guide

Set in the picturesque Chilterns and surrounded by Greenbelt countryside, the vibrant towns of Amersham & Little Chalfont offer a superb balance between commuter convenience and easy access to the surrounding countryside, including the Chess & Misbourne Valley. Amersham, the larger of the two towns, is made up of two distinct areas: Old Amersham, set in the valley of the River Misbourne, which contains the 13th century parish church of St. Mary's and several old pubs, coaching inns and boutique shops; and Amersham-on-the-Hill, which grew rapidly around the railway during the early part of the 20th century which now contains the main shopping area with high street brands such as Waitrose, Marks & Spencers and Boots, as well as a variety of eateries and coffee shops. Little Chalfont, on the other hand, is a quieter town by comparison, although no less sought after providing its own unique blend of public & social amenities.
