Basildon Park 

There are four way-marked walks around Basildon Park varying in distance from 0.5 to 3 miles. They take in the garden, parkland and the views of the Chilterns. The two shorter walks are pushchair friendly for an easier stroll. And the tea-room will be open daily serving light lunches and cake.

The River Thames running alongside the Cliveden Estate


Walking at Cliveden in winter is such a different experience. Incredible views open up between the leafless trees and the river Thames is a shining ribbon flowing away towards Windsor.
