End of the Line - Amersham

Here is the first of an occasional series I am bringing you. I will periodically catch a tube to the end of the line to see what is there.
This end-of-the-line trip at the northern end of the metropolitan line (the oldest tube) takes you to the quaint town of Amersham.
The tube stops in the new town. Catch a taxi to the old town (approx £5).

A perfectly preserved 17th-18th century English village with origins going back to pre-Saxon times. Explore the old church and market building. Have a leisurely lunch at one of the many restaurants or one of the quaint old pubs.

Wander down the main street to take in the old cottages, the many antique stores, the museum and park.
