Attraction Information

Chilterns Gateway Centre has lots of events for kids and families throughout the year. Come along and join the countryside team for one of the guided walks.

Enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Downs and its fantastic wildlife and plants. Join one of the many workshops. You can learn how to make biscuits and cakes even more tempting. Or perhaps improving or learning new skills is more to your taste?

The annual kite spectacular now extends over two days. Professional kite teams will entertain you, or you can browse around the craft marquee. Bring your own kite and experience the thrill of flying it yourself. Take to the downs for a run, walk or cycle ride and bring the family and enjoy the great outdoors.

In the centre: enjoy the wide selection of hot and cold drinks; plan your next walk from the brochures; and discover the history of the Downs. Family trails and activity packs are available to help keep kids interested, plus family events throughout the year, including annual kite festival.
