Beautiful views over the vale of aylesbury from the top of the beacon. Connect to walks all over Ashridge for a full day out in lovely countryside. Also the start of the Ridgeway for anyone wanting to walk 80 odd miles!

First of all park in the car park to the south of the hill and overlooking the beacon. The walk stars by going down towards the beacon before turning up towards it. You can walk straight up the hill but it can be slippery when...More

I've been on this lovely walk twice this summer and loved it, both times. The hills are a challenge, but not too bad as my elderly mother was able to make them, with her walking stick. The views are stunning. I recommend taking a drink...More

A wonderful place to take a relaxing walk and a picnic or if you like to exercise I would image it quite a challenge doing laps around the field, lovely views and plenty of parking too.

I often walk up Ivinghoe Beacon and enjoy the fantastic views. Watched a Red Kite playing on the thermals and a Kestrel catch a mouse. Great place for wildlife lovers.

If you like a good walk with great views and a nice ridge then this is the best place in the Chilterns. Just over 2 miles in a circular walk from the main car park. It will take you 50 minutes if you do not...More

Ivinghoe Beacon is such beautiful place, it's no wonder that it was chosen as a film location for the discovery of a “Portkey” in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It's breezy up on the top, and sensible footwear is required, but this is...More
