I was brought up in Ivinghoe and have been up here many times over a long time. The hill seems to have got easier over time - perhaps it seemed tougher as a child - but I’ve always enjoyed the view, spotting all the places...More

Great family thing to do and get away from consoles, tablets and tv. It takes about an hour to leisurely amble up and down the beacon from the free car park. It's exposed so often windy and it's surprising how fast the weather can change....More

I do this walk a couple of times a year. A decent effort from Tring station rewards you with superb panoramic views. Add on a loop back through the Ashridge estate for a to day.

There are several different paths to the Beacon and which ever way you go you can be assured of fabulous views. [Weather permitting] . It is usually very windy so a fleece or similar is sensible as are walking boots/ shoes. Most of the paths...More

I regularly walk the route with my dog but never see dogs running loose out of control. It is a deer park and there are rules about keeping dogs under control at all times due to deer attacks. Enjoy your walk up from the... More
