Walking

Princes Risborough is one of the few towns that sits on The Chiltern Ridgeway, and as such is a very popular place for walkers, both serious, and not so. There are many footpaths, bridleways, circular walks, and interesting historical sites to visit in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This part of the country offers some of the finest views in the Chilterns, with an abundance of interesting and unusual natural history. This area is an excellent place to see Red Kites soaring over the hills. Details of the varied walks and footpaths can be obtained at The Information Centre.
