Berkhamsted is one of the gateway towns to the 173-mile Chilterns Cycle Way which takes in some of the area's stunning panoramic views. The town is also the starting point for a cycle trail which travels north, passing pretty villages, Berkhamsted Common and the Ashridge Estate as well as providing views from the top of the Chilterns escarpment at Whipsnade. Ivinghoe Beacon, close to Ashridge, is home to the Bridgewater Monument and provides superb views over the surrounding countryside.
Berkhamsted's Waterways Walk starts at the station and follows the course of the River Bulbourne and the Grand Union Canal which runs through the town.
The long High Street plays host to a diverse range of independent and well-known retailers offering everything you'll need on a daily basis. For lunch or dinner, there's plenty of choice from good local pubs to restaurants and several cafes.
