Attraction Information

On a sunny day a stroll in the park fits the bill, but why not up the ante with stunning panoramas from Ivinghoe Beacon right up to the Bridgewater Monument? Introducing Ashridge Estate; a glorious country escape.

Bring your dog, bring your bike - you can even bring your horse! The estate is nestled in the chalk downlands and ancient woods of the Chiltern Hills. You’re free to explore a network of footpaths and bridleways, many of which are wheelchair/ pushchair accessible. Seasonal changes transform the landscape so no two visits are typically the same with dense carpets of bluebells in the spring, to the rich rosy shades of the autumnal leaves.

During your visit remember to keep eyes peeled for the local wildlife, including the likes of red kite and the often elusive fallow deer. You can also discover loads about the local environment - including the Iron Age and Victorian remains that litter the park - with a variety of interactive games in the Visitor Centre’s Discover Room.
