Top 10 things to do: Great Missenden

Missenden Abbey is the heart of the Chiltern Hills, but it’s only a five minute walk to Great Missenden train station where you can catch a train to London Marylebone.

We host some of our workshops at Missenden Abbey. It’s also great for events as it’s easy to get to from the local area and further afield – Heathrow Airport and London Luton Airport are around 25 miles away.
