Amersham Old Town has been described as the finest 'Old Town' in Britain and its easy to see why. 

With plenty of inviting places to pause for refreshment, shopping is a relaxing pastime both in Old Amersham and its more modern counterpart on the Hill, which grew up on the arrival of the Metropolitan Railway which connects to Marylebone. Ladies clothes shops predominates in the Old Town, in select outlets such as Jaeger and independent boutiques.

Here in the Old Town, picturesque pubs rub shoulders with contemporary eating places of which there are several to choose from. Amersham Museum is located at No.49 in Old Amersham High Street. This fabulous museum tells the story of local events, places and people, with exhibits and information covering an intriguing range of topics from Amersham's religious martyrs to Dinky Toys. There are excellent guided walks of the Old Town and its surroundings take place on selected dates. Here is the link -
