Gerrards Cross Walks

This Buckinghamshire based town is in a nice location for exploring the Chiltern Hill AONB. There's also a pleasant local common and riverside trails along the River Misbourne which runs past the eastern side of the settlement.
The town is accessible by public transport with services running into London in about 20 minutes.
This short circular walk takes you around Gerrards Cross Common in the town. The walk starts on the common which is located just to the south of the train station in the town. There are then various footpaths you can follow around the common. Here you'll find two picturesque ponds and some nice woodland trails.
You can extend the walk by heading a little west of the common to vist Bulstrode Park. There are public footpaths heading west past the Grade II listed mansion which predates theNorman conquest.

Pubs/Cafes

The Bull Hotel is a good choice for some post walk refreshment. The hotel dates all the way back to 1688 when it was a coaching inn. Now there is an award-winning restaurant and bar with a fine menu to choose from. The Jack Shrimpton bar is named after a 17th century highwayman and includes a charming interior with a cosy fire, carved wooden bar and ceiling beams.The site also includes a beautiful landscaped garden area. You can find the hotel next to the common at postcode SL9 7PA.

Dog Walking

The common is a fine place for a dog walk so you'll probably see other owners on your visit. The Bull mentioned above is also dog friendly.
